Capital Improvement Program
The Capital Improvement Program includes projects for reconstruction of residential and arterial streets, bridges, storm drain systems and drainage channels, street lights, traffic signals, sidewalks and City buildings. Eligible projects are given a ranking based on objective criteria such as amount of deterioration, traffic volume, proximity to community facilities, benefit to the public and other issues. The City then works with neighborhoods to include these projects in bond programs and other funding programs.
2008 Bond Program
On May 10, 2008, voters approved a $150 million, no-tax-increase bond program, meaning the amount of money available was limited with no property tax rate increase. The program allocated funding for reconstructing high-priority streets, not regular street maintenance.
2007 Critical Capital Needs Program
During December 2006, staff identified $ 150 million in Critical Capital Needs, and Council authorized the sale of Certificates of Obligation in each of the next four years to meet those needs.
2004 Bond Program
In February 2004, a six year, $273.5 million dollar bond program was approved by voters, which was the largest bond package ever approved in the City. This package was far more comprehensive than the 2008 Proposed Bond Program for street repairs and addressed streets, parks, fire stations, libraries, and other public health and safety improvements.
Major projects span multiple years and include many separate, smaller projects.
