Bob Swindell: How to Ensure Florida Isn’t Left Behind
By: Florida Chamber Foundation
Planning Today Will Ensure Florida’s Future Infrastructure is Ready for Tomorrow
Bob Swindell, President of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance and Florida Chamber Foundation Trustee, recently shared with the South Florida Sun Sentinel the importance of preparing Florida’s infrastructure today to help ensure it’s ready for 2030. And with 4.5 million new residents expected to call Florida home by that timeframe, preparing for 2030 now will help ensure Florida’s national and global footprint remains competitive.
“Florida continues to rank as one of the best places to live, work and call home.
“We’re adding 900-plus new residents each day. Eight counties, including Broward, will account for 57 percent of this population increase.
“Things like water, sound roadways and common-sense infrastructure, are goals that Floridians can get behind.
“The Florida Chamber is uniting Florida’s business community for good, and is hosting job creators and industry experts for its annual Transportation, Growth & Infrastructure Summit on December 5 in Hollywood.
“Top transportation leaders … will share their vision and strategies to manage and anticipate current and future infrastructure needs in a county of 1.9 million residents that sits at the center of South Florida.
“The future of Florida’s infrastructure is vital to ensure Florida is prepared for 2030.”
