Infrastructure impacts both businesses and residents and reflects on a community’s desirability. Improving member cities infrastructure has many benefits including the growth of the economy and improving quality of life, not just in any one city but throughout the entire region. ICA supports legislation that increases funding opportunities for new local infrastructure projects including roads, highways, bridges and public transportation as well as maintenance of existing infrastructure. Also, ICA supports legislation that provides additional funding for water delivery, water storage, and water quality projects.  ICA stresses the importance of supporting local zoning control and maintaining efficiency to avoid creating new mandates without complete funding.
