The success of our region will to a large extent correlate to our ability to provide adequate infrastructure for future growth. There are significant efforts underway to address all aspects of our infrastructure. We would not presume to micro manage or second guess the individual efforts of single purpose agencies; however, we should strive to make sure these efforts are coordinated and leveraged to the greatest extent possible.
The interrelationships of all aspects of transportation, energy, recreational trails, flood control, water supply, sewer, parks, telecommunications, and solid waste should be mapped out and to the extent possible coordinated for timing and the pursuit of the necessary funding.
- Develop a plan to adequately finance transportation infrastructure
- Identify ways to improve mobility within existing built environments
- Minimize impacts and maximize opportunities for the premier freight corridor in the western United States
