NEW JERSEYS INFRASTRUCTURE:
WHAT IS NEEDED AND HOW TO FUND IT
TRENTON, NJ (December 7, 2012) December 12 at the Mercer County College in West Windsor, the NJLM Educational Foundation presents this strategic view of New Jersey’s infrastructure needs, in an effort to help the public and policy makers understand a global estimate and approach to New Jersey’s infrastructure repair & replacement. This will involve community infrastructure, transportation, and utility infrastructure. The current cost estimates and range of needs is so enormous as to make it seem impossible using current approaches. The presenters will offer their views of the macro needs and possible costs for the State’s infrastructure; as well as local needs. There will be a discussion of policies and priorities and a review of ways forward with such an enormous task.
Then there will be a more focuses discussion of how these macro forces impact local needs, planning and funding options.
