Webinar Summary:

The U.S. Federal government is poised to spend significant new dollars on infrastructure projects that will have a generational impact. But, with pandemic-related fears and policies still impacting our communities, what transportation infrastructure investments still make sense and what others will be necessary? Is remote work here to stay and how will it impact the demands on our commuting networks? And then, how will these decisions impact real estate investment decisions within central office districts, retail corridors, and residential neighborhoods. We know that there continues to be a strong desire for people to come together to work and to enjoy each other’s company but how does this new reality impact our social spaces especially as we grapple with existential priorities of addressing our housing affordability crisis, recovering from COVID-19, addressing racial injustice, and adapting to a changing climate?

Hear from experts who are having these very discussions on how they are thinking about leveraging these federal, state, and local infrastructure investments with context from the recent Shaw Symposium on Urban Community Issues: Equitable Investment in Infrastructure and Housing report, which lays out a framework for more equitable, resilient, and healthy infrastructure investment.
