Breaking the Infrastructure Model

February 24, 2023 9:45 AM – 10:45 AM (GMT-05:00) Eastern Time Raleigh Convention Center, Ballroom A
General Session Open to All Attendees

How do we build a thriving community? By envisioning the future we want. We begin by studying the values and assumptions made that currently comprise our infrastructure models. Both business models and public policies have led to the creation of plans and codes that are based on outdated and historic projections – projections that have and continue to enforce the status quo. In order to meet the growing needs of both today and tomorrow, we need to envision new, more sustainable models surrounding infrastructure, while also questioning our underlying assumptions. From roads, ports, and railways to highways, public transportation, and high-speed broadband, join us as we reimagine our multimodal communities as we look to create a better more connected future.
