Celebrate National Public Works Week

NPWW Proclamation 2015

National Public Works Week (NPWW) is a celebration of the men and women in North America who provide and maintain the infrastructure and services collectively known as public works.

American Public Works Association (APWA) sponsors NPWW. Across North America, this week is to educate the public on the importance of public works: planning, building, managing, maintaining and operating our communities.

This year's (2015) theme "Community Begins Here" speaks to the essential nature of Public Works services in support ofeveryday quality of life. There would be no community without the quality of life public works provides. There would be no community to police and protect, no public to lead or represent. Public works allows the world as we know it to be.
