Capital Improvement Program Update: Reprogramming Approved

In an effort to maximize current bond funding available in the Capital Improvement Program (CIP), City Council recently authorized the reprogramming of approximately $28.2 million to address new emerging unfunded priorities citywide.

From 1987 to the present, approximately $785 million has been programmed for projects to include various street and drainage and quality of life improvements - of which only $178 million remains in active projects. The reprogramming effort stemmed from a comprehensive evaluation of the CIP in order to identify unexpended funds that could be used towards more immediate capital needs. Funding recommended for reprogramming primarily included residual balances from completed projects within the program.
