The infrastructure bill has finally passed, and with it comes a host of concerns, pitfalls, and risks. Our communities are on the brink of spending millions of dollars digging ourselves into a pit of endless maintenance and debt issues, paving highways we don’t need that will only do us harm.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. With a careful, fiscally prudent approach, we can use infrastructure funding to make our towns stronger, not weaker or more reliant on outside money.
In this session, Beth Osborne, director of Transportation for America, with decades of experience in federal and state transportation policy, guides you through how to think about the impending infrastructure avalanche and not squander this opportunity. Charles Marohn, president of Strong Towns, speaks about a Strong Towns approach to infrastructure investments.
