    As the D.C. region expands, municipalities are grappling with how to build the schools, transportation and recreational amenities necessary to accommodate this growth. Traditionally provided by local governments, public infrastructure is increasingly being financed and built by public/private partnerships (PPP).
    Join ULI’s YLG Education Committee for a virtual panel highlighting three successful local public/ private partnerships, including a high school adjacent to new housing and retail being developed by EYA and Hoffman & Associates in Falls Church; a police station as part of a mixed-use redevelopment in downtown Bethesda; and JBG Smith’s significant investment in transportation infrastructure of Crystal City. Panelists will discuss their experience across jurisdictions, and best practices for municipalities and developers partnering to accommodate growth in our region.
