Infrastructure is more than just moving people and things to and from, it includes the backbone support of today’s and tomorrow’s growing demands for connectivity. To remain a competitive economy for business investment, we must take steps to address our infrastructure comprehensively. The future of the Charlotte Region hinges on strong infrastructure in every community.

The CLT Alliance will host a six-part virtual Infrastructure Series to discuss, discover and deepen understanding of our major areas of opportunity. In our first session of the series we will focus on Traditional Infrastructure including roads, bridges, airports and utilities.

Thursday, September 17

11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Create Awareness.  How the development of our current transportation system has led to a greater economic divide.

Inspire Progressive Thinking.  How can we ensure our region's future infrastructure investment learns from the mistakes of our past.
