Strategy BE1.2: Identify areas throughout the region for targeted infrastructure investments.
In addition to preserving sites with infrastructure, steps should be taken to prepare new sites, especially in rural centers. Investments should be targeted to identified priority investment areas in all counties to ensure an equitable distribution of job growth throughout the region. One step to facilitate an understanding of regional infrastructure needs is to establish a regional infrastructure coordination committee. The role of this committee would be to disseminate information regarding planned infrastructure improvements to participating members. The information sharing could reveal partnership opportunities that would result in cost savings for participating jurisdictions.
