  • The need for consistent representation and lobbying efforts in local, state and federal governments
  • Declining population
  • Aging residential housing
  • Declining tax bases that are not meeting infrastructure maintenance needs or the provision of basic services
  • Heroin, opioid and other drug epidemics
  • Construction and infrastructure changes, such as new pipelines
