Celebrate National Public Works Week
This week is National Public Works Week, May 19 to May 25. NPWW’s 2019 theme is “It Starts Here”, which represents “the many facets of the modern civilization that grow out of the efforts put forth by the public works professionals across North America.”
“What starts here?” reads the NPWW website. “Infrastructure starts with public works… Growth and innovation starts with public works… Mobility starts with public works… Security starts with public works… Healthy communities start with public works… The bottom line is that citizens’ quality of life starts with public works.”
The American Public Works Association has sponsored NPWW since 1960, and the event continues to grow. This week, APWA’s 30,000+ members in North America strive to engage and educate the public on the value of public works to their daily lives.
APWA encourages public works agencies and professionals to take the opportunity to make their stories known in their communities, reads the NPWW site. We at AsphaltPro encourage you to do the same.
