Tennessee Public Infrastructure Needs Inventory Assessment for FY 1998. A Commission Report to the 101st General Assembly.
Green, Harry A.; Norman, John F, .; McClure, C. Bennett, II
This report represents the first effort by any public or private agency or organization to provide a comprehensive assessment of Tennessee's public infrastructure needs. Hundreds of local government officials and private citizens contributed information to this research. The main participants in the infrastructure inventory were the local governments being surveyed by the Tennessee Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations, and the nine development districts that are contracted to conduct inventory surveys. The key participants were the various local governments and officials who determine infrastructure needs in each community across the state. The report is divided into two sections. The first part contains survey information on general infrastructure needs that was collected from local governments and other entities. The second part examines K-12 education infrastructure needs. All of the states 138 K-12 public school systems were surveyed. Results from the local-government surveys indicate that $13.7 billion is needed for infrastructure projects and improvements. These improvements included transportation projects, capital-improvement plans, mandated requirements, and water and waste-water accounts. The K-12 public education survey uncovered infrastructure needs totaling $2.5 billion. Needed improvements include basic repairs to bring all schools up to at least a "good" condition. Thirty-five appendices provide further information. (RJM)
