Doing More with Less in 2050 

In 2050, resources to fund infrastructure and vital public services at all levels of government – federal, state, and local – are likely to be diminished.  Governments need to develop new revenue sources and adopt creative solutions to continue providing the services their residents expect.  How will the region and its municipalities respond in order to balance what they have with what they need by 2050?  And what can be done to give the region the best chance at success?
