Webinar: Sustainability in Action — Infrastructure Costing and Asset Management
Friday, March 28, 2014
12:00–1:30 p.m. EDT
Infrastructure challenges are among the most pressing concerns for municipalities, now and into the future. Aging infrastructure must be replaced with greener, higher-performing assets, designed to withstand extreme weather events and other climate change impacts, while making limited infrastructure dollars go further. Learn through two municipal profiles how asset management and informed infrastructure costing can help your municipality become more resilient and boost its triple bottom line.
A leader in asset management, the City of Barrie, ON, is improving municipal service through long-term infrastructure planning. To help manage its rapid development, the City of Calgary, AB, conducts detailed infrastructure costing studies to consider the financial impacts of various growth patterns.
For an introduction to new approaches on infrastructure management, take a look at Sustainable Cities International's municipal guide, which is featured in the webinar.
