CENTER FOR CIVIC INNOVATION CONFERENCE

The Private Role in Public Infrastructure

Thursday, October 2, 2008
New York City, NY

KEYNOTE SPEAKER:

The Honorable Mary E. Peters
Secretary, U.S. Department of Transportation

Infrastructure—whether in the form of roads, bridges, tunnels, passenger rail, pipelines or power lines—is critical to sustained economic growth and quality of life. Yet we in the United States have had increasing difficulty maintaining our existing infrastructure and building vital new projects. How can we close this infrastructure gap? In infrastructure innovation, we explore the possible roles of private sector finance and management, whether as a complement or as a substitute for traditional government ownership and operation. Please join us for a discussion among leading public officials, scholars and investors on this crucial topic.
