The Infrastructure strategy focuses on improving systems and structures that enhance the region’s economy, and sustains its population.

Building a Well-Connected Region
Chair – Nick DeIuliis, President and CEO, CONSOL Energy

To attract and retain talented individuals and employers to our region, we must provide a world-class transportation and infrastructure network, including transit to better connect the region locally, nationally and globally. Three initiatives will set our path for the future, make air service better and support investments that will make a difference to our quality of life.

Initiative: Develop a regional transportation vision and framework.

  • Prepare a regional transportation vision document by 2017.

Initiative: Enhance air service competitiveness.

  • Encourage incremental increases in new flights.
  • Promote national policy to strengthen air service in smaller markets.
  • Encourage startup/hub activity.

Initiative: Support targeted strategic investment.

  • Support intra-regional high priority connectivity projects.
  • Evaluate water quality through better wastewater and storm water management, regionalization, and updated governance and source structure.
