Why you need to rethink municipal planning: a joint webinar by WithersRavenel and Brightly

Would it be possible to transform a planning timeline from a few years to several decades? Yes, say our experts at this webinar that factors in the unprecedented federal funding available through the Infrastructure and Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). State and local governments need to take advantage of this generational opportunity to address longstanding infrastructure deficits.

WithersRavenel Chief Experience and Innovation Officer Eddie Staley, PLS, GISP, and Sam Chapin, Brightly’s Government Solutions Consultant Team Leader, hosted an interactive session on “Rethinking Municipal Planning: Redefining Long-Range Planning from Years to Decades.”
The duo shed light on strategies for planning with a longer-range view, while discussing new laws and policies that will require rethinking the planning process, and how powerful models can help you leverage existing data.
