(p.74) 8 Overextended Infrastructure
Designing Our Way to a Better World

Thomas Fisher

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter considers the quantity rather than quality of infrastructure to figure out how much is enough. An issue that matters to municipalities with limited tax bases and the federal government’s management of catastrophic weather events’ infrastructure damage. The author suggests that the deficit in our infrastructure repair bill can only be solved if we address the issue of where and how we should—and shouldn’t—live

Keywords:   infrastructure quantity, catastrophic weather events, disaster management, suburban development, infrastructure repair and reconstruction, public deficit, sustainability
