About the Program

California’s future prosperity depends on its infrastructure to support long-term economic and population growth. Yet the state faces a multibillion-dollar backlog of deferred maintenance and modernization for road, school, and water projects. It also faces an affordable housing crisis. This event will examine the challenges—and explore innovative solutions—from a local perspective.
