How “Value Planning,” a systems-based, community-centric approach to infrastructure design can accelerate sustainable, inclusive prosperity.
The CSI Whistle Stop Tour will travel virtually across the region to share how sustainable infrastructure projects are re-shaping the Pacific Northwest for a better future. Throughout the virtual “stops” on this tour, we’ll highlight projects across the Pacific Northwest that are helping create stronger economies, more vibrant communities and a healthier environment, and we’ll share how CSI and our partners are helping to bring these projects to life.
Join us to learn about each of these projects and how, collectively, they are transforming our region and can serve as an example for sustainable infrastructure - across the country and around the world.
Whistle Stop #2 features Olympia, Washington.
