Capital Planning Conference for New England Municipal Officials
The Collins Center and the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy have organized this conference as part of the Lincoln Institute's Critical Issues for the Fiscal Health of New England Cities and Towns series in order to provide New England municipal officials with highly practical capital planning advice, ideas, best practices, and tools that they can put to use in their own municipalities.
The morning will include two sessions: (1) capital planning, with concurrent panels for officials from municipalities with different levels of knowledge and practice (ranging from those that have no capital plan to those that have a sophisticated capital plan); and (2) financing capital spending, with one panel for those looking for basic finance strategies and another for those interested in advanced financing strategies.
The afternoon will provide a variety of special topics, including communicating with the public about capital needs and expenditures, capital planning and climate change preparedness, and alternative strategies for funding capital expenditures.
This is an invitation only event.
