VIDEO: Expert looks at metro areas’ future reliance on infrastructure



Adie Tomer, a fellow at the Brookings Institution Metropolitan Policy Program, spoke at the Tomorrow Plan Speaker Series today put on by the Des Moines Area MPO and Des Moines Area Regional Transit Authority. His talk was timely in Greater Des Moines, where cultivating a place people want to experience is a core strategy to grow the region’s population and cement its status as a global city.

Tomer, who leads the Metropolitan Infrastructure Initiative at the Brookings Institution, focuses his work on metropolitan infrastructure usage patterns, including personal and freight transportation, and the intersections between infrastructure and technological development. Prior to his work at Brookings, Tomer was a senior analyst at the New York County District Attorney’s Office, where he advised senior executives on policy-relevant matters.
