Mass transit, transportation, utilities, water, sewer, waste management, roadways, bridges are all part of our infrastructure.
Much of the planning and maintenance that is needed to ensure that our growing needs are met has been deferred for many years. We are now at a point where our quality of life has been compromised because there are not enough roadways resulting in congestion, traffic, inconvenient and costly breaks in utility lines, damage to property, and crumbling roads and highways. Maintenance and new infrastructure is expensive but necessary to our growing population. However, these undertakings are large in scope and scale and require planning, budgeting, leadership, and good management of the various agencies needed to initiate and implement these projects.
