ESI President and Principal, Stephen Mullin, spoke at StateImpact: The Delaware River Watershed – Healthy or At Risk?. Panelists provided their grades for the health of the Watershed, and offered their thoughts on the state of development. StateImpact Pennsylvania is a project of Marie Cusick and Katie Colaneri through WITF and WHYY. NPR’s local station covered the event.
Steve Mullin, Philadelphia’s former Finance Director who currently runs his own economic policy consulting firm, gave the watershed a B when he weighs both the economic and environmental costs and benefits of working and living near the water. He thinks development is moving in the right direction.
