FUND 2040 Benefits

A STRONGER ECONOMY

Our region's economic future is tied to smart, strategic infrastructure investments. FUND 2040 will build capital projects that are shown to have strong positive impacts on economic performance.

LESS TRAFFIC CONGESTION AND MORE TRAVEL CHOICES

Congestion damages the quality of life and economic strength of our region. FUND 2040 will support transportation projects that reduce this crippling congestion and provide alternatives to driving alone, like taking transit, bicycling, or walking.

LESS FLOOD DAMAGE

Storms with heavy rainfall strike our region with increasing frequency. FUND 2040 will support infrastructure to protect our communities from the impacts of these damaging weather events.

HEALTHIER PEOPLE

Infrastructure that encourages active lifestyles can improve overall public health. FUND 2040 will build new parks, as well as transportation improvements that encourage walking and bicycling.

HEALTHIER ENVIRONMENT

Investments that improve our region's economy can also enhance its environment. FUND 2040 will preserve and restore the most environmentally sensitive land in our region and also reduce the expensive waste of drinking water lost through leaky pipes.

EFFICIENT GOVERNMENT

The region needs a concerted effort to make infrastructure investments that accomplish the shared goals described in the GO TO 2040 regional plan. FUND 2040 will align its capital projects to leverage public and private investments.
