We all know that transportation systems are important components for economic development and day-to-day mobility. However, demographic trends, the creative class, emerging economies and the demand for “quality of place” will require, and even demand, that communities and regions contain a “competitive infrastructure set” that includes: Broadband/Communications, Energy/Power Grid, Green Infrastructure, Water Resources, and Sustainable Mobility Systems. Positioning our region for the new economy will require cooperation and collaboration at the regional level. Panelist speakers will present local challenges and recent investments in the infrastructure areas above, and how investment now (or lack thereof) will affect the region’s financial, environmental, and intellectual resources. They will also discuss the needs and opportunities for the future, including how regional cooperation can help all members of the community develop their infrastructure systems in a more sustainable, efficient manner.
