Infrastructure Law and Legal Definition
Infrastructure generally refers to the most basic level of organizational structure in a complex body or system, upon which the rest of the structure is based. In economic terms, it often refers to basic public services, such as power and water supplies, public transportation, telecommunications, roads, and schools.
Precise definitions will vary by local law and governing entity. The following is an example of a school's definition of infrastructure:
For the purposes of this program, infrastructure is defined to include those activities of purchasing, building, furnishing, reconstructing, repairing, improving or remodeling a schoolhouse or schoolhouses and additions to schoolhouses, gymnasium, field house, and procuring a site or sites therefor, or purchasing land to add to a site already owned.
