Abstract: Competition for the available resources needed to redevelop, operate, and maintain our nation's infrastructure requires innovative thinking. To make best use of these resources, there is a need to develop a definite game plan, one that focuses on the problems, considers external and internal influences, has flexibility, recognizes constraints, and is action-oriented. What is called for is a strategic plan. Strategic planning can take place at all levels of government by the staff, incorporating public participation and involving technical, financial, and legal consultants for specific expertise. It must be focused and goal-oriented. It must consider all costs - capital, operating, and maintenance, and must address the budget constraints. The plan needs broad base support to be accepted and implementable.
