Study: Area Lags in Outlays for Public Infrastructure

September 13, 2003

“The Indianapolis area lags behind the rest of the nation in building roads, schools, and other public infrastructure that improves quality of life and helps companies thrive and create jobs, an Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis study says. So do other major Indiana cities, said the study from the Center for Urban Policy and the Environment.

Study author Sam Nunn said that while the results are not reasons to panic – not all the news is bad – they are “early warning signs” that quality of life could slide in the long term.”
