Institute to Study State's Infrastructure Challenges

June 09, 2002|Times staff and wire reports

The Keston California Infrastructure Institute has been formed at the University of Southern California's Lusk Center to address the infrastructure challenges faced by the state.

The Keston Institute was funded with a lead gift from Michael and Linda Keston. Michael Keston is an adjunct professor in the USC School of Policy, Planning and Development and chairman and CEO of the real estate investment firm Larwin Co. in Encino. He was named chairman of the board and senior fellow of the institute.

California's population is projected to increase by 5 million people per decade and reach 45 million by 2020, according to the Lusk Center. Recent studies conclude that California's infrastructure is inadequate to support its rapidly growing population and economy.

The institute will evaluate the economic and demographic implications of government policy initiatives designed to enhance the state's infrastructure.
