Abstract: Papers presented dealt with the financial, legal, political, planning, and engineering issues associated with providing public infrastructure necessary to meet the demands of growth in urban communities. Major areas examined included government funding capabilities at local, state and federal levels; political processes affecting both planning and funding decisions; and planning methodologies to predict and respond to population growth and shifts. The impact of proposed federal tax law revision on tax exempt financing and privatization schemes was examined and its prognosis for passage discussed. The need for engineers to recognize the multidisciplinary nature of the infrastructure planning process and coordinate their efforts with those in the financial and political arenas was stressed.
