Event: 2008 Regional Assembly in New York will feature Pelosi keynote on National Infrastructure Needs

On Friday, April 18, 2008, Regional Plan Association will hold its annual Regional Assembly at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New York City. This year's event will feature a luncheon keynote address by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who will discuss her vision for a national infrastructure investment plan.

The Assembly will take an in-depth look at energy and water and how their increasing scarcity impacts the economic growth and prosperity of the New York City metropolitan region, with lessons for national polices. Specific workshops will examine the way this growing scarcity shapes community design, changes our workforce, focuses attention on the protection of our open space, and affects regional and national transportation.

In addition to Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, speakers include New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine, Atlanta Mayor Shirley C. Franklin, and Congressman Earl Blumenauer.
