"Towns and cities across Canada face a constant struggle to maintain aging infrastructure, such as stormwater systems, roads, buildings and other municipal assets, while also building new services and systems to meet community needs. Add to that the pressure to adapt to — and prepare for — climate change, and the need to manage development in an environmentally responsible manner, and municipal councils have a lot on their plates.
Is your municipality facing challenges like these?
Asset management planning could be your solution to making better infrastructure investments. It's an innovative approach to managing physical assets in a way that is socially, environmentally and economically sustainable in the long term.
Creating an asset management plan can help your municipality address specific infrastructure needs while also preparing for climate change. It can help identify the infrastructure investments that make the most financial sense in the long run." [www.fcm.ca/assetmanagement]
