Fittingly held at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club with the bridge as a backdrop, ESLC’s 19th Annual Planning Conference will stimulate conversation around ways to minimize congestion today and explore long-term infrastructure solutions for the future. Included in the discussion will be the proposed third bay bridge span and the social, economic, environmental, and cultural impacts of this and other solutions. Through interactive panel discussions and keynote speakers, guests will leave with a better understanding of this regional issue and the possible solutions for mitigation. Attendees should come with an appetite for stimulating discussion and delicious, locally sourced foods!
