Join SMPS-NY on Tuesday, July 25th to learn about how Tri-state agencies are responding to the current social, economic, and political issues facing the region. What particular programs and initiatives will support the most capital expenditure in the A/E/C community in the near future? How are agencies collaborating with the private sector to enhance development and revitalization in areas targeted to support future growth? And how are regional agencies looking to A/E/C companies to address the challenges of building in NYC’s increasingly cost-prohibitive environment?
