Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) hosted a local discussion to explore both how Colorado can continue to push the envelope and assess ways to systematically incentivize and implement the new model around the country. This "Denver Forum: Advancing a New Model of Infrastructure Investment" was held on Tuesday, September 20, 2016 Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce.
America is facing tremendous infrastructure investment needs—$3.3 trillion by 2025. Recognizing this level of need requires new thinking, the Executive Council on Infrastructure recently released the report Bridging the Gap Together: A New Model to Modernize U.S. Infrastructure. The report proposes a framework to unite projects that need funding with private capital that is ready to invest.
Colorado has been a national leader in innovative infrastructure delivery, with a number of projects—both in development and completed—that demonstrate the value of partnering with the private sector.
The event video will be posted here shortly.
