Join us for our March program, a point/counterpoint debate between two engineers who will represent public and private perspectives about what “good engineering” entails. Our speakers will discuss:  

  • How infrastructure affects our daily lives. What we can do to make it better now and in the future?

  • How did we get here?

  • What does a good streetscape look like?

  • What is the best way to handle stormwater?

  • What is the best plan for sewer and water?

  • Who should pay for new infrastructure?

  • Infrastructure costs are not only developer costs, but have long term cost implications for cities—are we spending our dollars wisely?

  • How can we work together to make better decisions?

Guest Speakers:

Hannah Pritchard, P.E., PTOE, Toole Design Group and John P. Rodeberg, P.E., SEH
