According to the American Society of Civil Engineers, it’s estimated that infrastructure needs for the United States will rise to $3.6 trillion by 2020. Coupled with the projected population growth in metropolitan economies - by 32 percent or nearly 84 million people, according to research conducted by the Conference of Mayors – there is a clear need to create a transportation network that can meet the demands of our growing population. While the data and statistics on our transportation woes are informative and compelling, how can you use it build support for the changes needed in your community?
NLC will be hosting a webinar with the American Society of Civil Engineers to help local elected officials translate valuable national transportation data into digestible points and stories. We will also look at the new data surrounding the overall economic impact of continued underinvestment in infrastructure – what does this mean for jobs, household income, and GDP? Webinar participants will also learn about potential untapped sources of expertise at the local level and how to foster meaningful lines of communication with them to develop a transportation system that meets your community’s needs.
