Infrastructure Week is a national week of events, media coverage, education, and advocacy efforts to elevate infrastructure as a critical issue impacting all Americans. This year, the Morgantown Area Partnership’s Infrastructure Week theme is “Connectivity” as we illustrate how the various development plans interconnect to build The City of Morgantown and Monongalia County.

If you are a business owner, government personnel, or a local resident, you will learn:
- How our community plans;

- How our local infrastructure develops over time.
About The Infrastructure Week Committee
Locally, Infrastructure Week is organized by the Morgantown Area Partnership’s Infrastructure Committee. The Infrastructure Committee is comprised of an eclectic mix of Monongalia County professionals involved in government, law, utilities, private development, long-term planning, and more. The Mission of the committee is to create both community awareness and action in support of our natural and man-made infrastructure so that it continues to serve as the foundation upon which our shared community can flourish for generations to come. In 2022, the Chair of the Infrastructure Committee is Tony Faini, an Economic Development Attorney with Steptoe & Johnson PLLC.
As the Partnership’s primary focus regarding the infrastructure that serves as the building blocks for our local economy, the Infrastructure Committee works alongside business and government to echo the message of the national organization (United for Infrastructure) to educate the local public and policymakers about the importance of infrastructure to the local economy, workers, and the community. This year, on Friday, May 20th, there will be an in-person event along with a free, virtual live-stream for anyone interested in learning about our local economic development plans. Representatives from the Monongalia County Commission, the City of Morgantown, the Metropolitan Planning Organization, and other local professionals will discuss our area’s new 10-year plans and the various ways to finance the growth of our shared community.
