Infrastructure & Growth Leadership
This Pillar underscores the fundamental contributions of factors such as transportation, communications and land use to a vibrant economy. Early symptoms, if not addressed, will become crippling diseases undermining the state’s economic health. Malnourished ports would turn away burgeoning international trade. Congested and deteriorating roadways and railways could choke intra- and inter-state commerce. Sprawl threatens the sufficiency of water and energy. This need not be Florida’s prognosis. In contrast, smart and timely investments in strategies that are tied to sustainable infrastructure targets are the medicine for a shared economic prosperity for all Floridians.
