Building Tennessee’s Tomorrow: Anticipating the State’s Infrastructure Needs July 2018 through June 2023

This report provides an inventory of anticipated public infrastructure needs for the state of Tennessee for the period July 2018 through June 2023. Public infrastructure is defined as capital facilities and land assets under public ownership or operated or maintained for public benefit. To be included in the Public Infrastructure Needs Inventory, infrastructure projects must not be considered normal or routine maintenance and must involve a capital cost of at least $50,000. The types of infrastructure covered are: transportation and utilities; education; health, safety, and welfare; recreation and culture; general government; and economic development. The inventory was derived from surveys of local officials by staff of the state’s nine development districts; the capital budget requests submitted to the Governor by state officials as part of the annual budget process; needed capital projects from the Tennessee Board of Regents; and bridge and road needs from project listings provided by state transportation officials. The inventory is both a product and a continuous process, one that has been useful in short-term and long-range planning; providing a framework for funding decision; increasing public awareness of infrastructure needs; and fostering better communication and collaboration among agencies and decision makers.
