SUSTAINABLE INFRASTRUCTURE IN SHRINKING CITIES
Abstract: The report includes a synopsis of recent literature regarding the management of water, sewer, transportation, and energy infrastructure in shrinking cities. It presents findings from a series of interviews with infrastructure management professionals, most of whom are from Northeast Ohio. The analysis of the literature and interviews found no evidence that the maintenance costs saved by decommissioning infrastructure would outweigh the opportunity costs of removing something that might prove useful in the future.
