Public Works Serve as Symbols of Public Life: OC Streetcar

Whether you consider California to be paradise, dystopia or both, the state is certain to be the beneficiary of the largest share of federal funding from the $1.2-trillion infrastructure act, about $45 billion. On a per-person basis, that’s still a modest $1,200, so the funds won’t magically transform California into a public works paradise.

What is likely to improve, if not transform, the quality of Californian and American life is a variety of public works of all kinds, each one serving a mostly local need and directed by dedicated government professionals to a successful completion on the public’s behalf.
