Without a modern, high quality network of infrastructure, a region cannot sustain economic activity, retain its students and workers, or attract visitors, tourists and investment. The Pioneer Valley’s infrastructure includes its transportation, broadband and energy networks; public health and safety resources; housing supply; and natural resources including water supplies, agricultural land and open space/recreational areas. Both local and regional efforts are necessary to ensure consistency, resiliency, and sufficient redundancy to withstand disruptions. The following strategies are meant to achieve these goals:
- Enhance High-Tech and Conventional Infrastructure.
- Increase Use of Clean Energy to Reduce Business Costs and Improve the Environment.
- Enhance Regional Approaches to Public Safety, Public Health and Disaster Resilience.
- Develop an Array of Housing Options that Foster Economic Competitiveness.
- Revitalize and Protect the Connecticut River and its Watershed.
