This is not new but it is incredibly relevant when we think about our own city and the pattern and system of development that we currently employ and continue to support. If you have some time, have a listen to Chuck Marohn from Strong Towns. To put this into perspective, the City of Sudbury recently took a hard look at their road assets and what resources they will require to keep them operational. The current lifespan of a road surface in Sudbury is 15-20 years at best. With the current funding and tax system the life cycle replacement of the roads in Sudbury is about 82 years!!! This means the infrastructure will continue to crumble unless there is a massive tax increase (2-3 times the current rates) or a completely new approach to how we develop. North Bay is not dissimilar. Food for thought!
