Guests on The Infra Blog: Jonathan Bowles & Adam Forman of the Center for an Urban Future

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014
Jonathan Bowles, Executive Director, Center for an Urban Future

Steve Anderson, Managing Director, InfrastructUSA, interviews Jonathan Bowles and Adam Forman of the Center for an Urban Future. Topics include NYC’s need to focus on infrastructure, the role of the Center for an Urban Future, and the new report, “Caution Ahead: Overdue Investments for New York’s Aging Infrastructure.”

Forman: New York City’s infrastructure is old. Whether it’s our transportation infrastructure, our bridges and roads, utility infrastructure, our steam mains and gas mains, or our buildings: our hospitals, our schools, our public housing buildings, it’s old…I think there are so many areas where we can improve the functioning of our infrastructure and the safety if we were investing more intelligently.

Caution Ahead

CENTER FOR AN URBAN FUTURE
FOLLOWING THE DEVASTATION OF SUPERSTORM SANDY IN OCTOBER 2012, NEW York City’s essential infrastructure needs were made a top policy priority for the first time in decades. The scale and severity of the storm prompted numerous studies to assess the damage and led policymakers to take steps to shore up the city’s coastal infrastructure weaknesses.

If left unchecked, they could wreak as much havoc on the city’s economy, competitiveness and quality of life as the next big storm.

UNIVERSITY TRANSPORTATION RESEARCH CENTER
PLANNING TODAY in Region 2, requires knowledge of multi-modal and intermodal systems serving both freight and passenger movements. Planning in the region involves not only MPOs, but all of the many agencies taxed with the need to move people and goods 24/7. Planning is constrained by institutional mandate and history, the need to catch up with a backlog of capital needs, and a chronic shortage of adequate funds for both maintaining and building the infrastructure.
