The Utility and Public Right of Way Committee focuses on ensuring the sustainable use of public-owned rights of way by navigating the complex relationships among City, State, and Utility governing bodies. The Committee’s core values center around collaborative decision-making and the responsible management of this finite resource. The Committee advises on coordinating designs, construction, and land usage, working to ensure the community’s needs are met within the utility sector. The Committee works to positively impact the industry by promoting an understanding of community needs, serving as a guiding force for responsible, sustainable, and community-focused practices in the management of public rights of way.
