The Alliance members have identified the need for reliable municipal and utility services as a priority workplace concern within the 128 central corridor. Their concerns include the consistent delivery of essential utility services like water, sewer, electricity and gas. Municipal services must keep pace with the demands of additional development and occupancy. Examples of issues concerning the adequacy of essential utility services can be found in a number of rapid growth communities. These include maintaining adequate water pressure to meet emergency minimum standards as well as supplying adequate water needs. In the past Power outages were a regular and frequent business interruption that caused havoc for workplaces along the 128 corridor. Alliance members are committed to working with key neighborhood stakeholders to insure that essential services will keep pace with the increasing demands created by growth in local markets.
