Since 1960, National Public Works Week (NPWW) has been celebrated each May to raise awareness of the vitally important contributions of public works professionals and the crucial role that infrastructure, facilities and services play in the quality of life in our community. This year’s theme “Stronger Together” challenges public works professionals and citizens to think about the role public works plays in creating a great place to live. Public Works helps maintain a community’s strength by working together to provide an infrastructure of services in transportation, water, wastewater, and stormwater treatment, public buildings and spaces, parks, and grounds, emergency management and first response, solid waste, and right-of-way management. Public Works provides togetherness needed for collaboration with all the stakeholders in capital projects, infrastructure solutions, and quality of life services. By working together, the impact citizens and public works professionals can have on their communities is magnified and results in the ability to accomplish goals once thought unattainable.
