to revenue enhancements, to longer
lifecycle maintenance methods.
* Using the resources, tools and the effective communication techniques presented in this study, county engineers
can inform and educate their elected
leaders and citizens on preservation
issues, and gain support to move toward
purposeful action.
The results of these initiatives were well
received by the pilot county engineers and
their commissioners, and, in some cases,
significant positive impacts on preservation needs have already been realized.
For example, as a direct outcome of this
work, four of the five counties substantially increased local revenue dedicated
to system preservation. The total revenue
increase among these four counties was
over $15 million in new annual funding.
This result would not have been achieved
without an effective communication plan.
The pilot county engineers believe educating elected officials, the public and
stakeholders served as an important part
of the process.
Other lessons learned include:
* Generally, citizens, stakeholders, and
elected leaders want to be good stewards of their public infrastructure and
with solid, well-presented data, they
can understand the value of preservation action, as well as the consequences
of inaction.
* An active well-conceived communication program, oriented toward specific
local preservation needs and supplemented with understandable graphics can be very effective in gaining
champions and support for an ongoing preservation program. "Branding"
the county preservation program
gives it a sense of local ownership,
and achievements can be shared as
"proud moments" for residents and the
county board.
* The education process for the county
board and county administrator can be
extremely useful in gaining support for
preservation strategy implementation and
new funding; it can improve lines of communication and change the relationship/
culture which will make it easier for
ongoing transportation cooperation.
