Fixing roads, new sidewalks and a traffic signal top Capital Improvement Program projects that will be underway later this year...
A five year program to fund construction projects, facility improvements and technology projects was approved by the City Council at their regular meeting on Tuesday evening.
Highlights of the proposed $4.4 million Capital Improvement Program (CIP) budget include:
- Lakeshore Drive rehabilitation from Illinois to Viscaya (in the four corners area)
- Diamond Drive pavement from I-15 to Lakeshore Drive and other street improvements
- Park & Recreation play equipment replacement at McVicker Canyon Park
- Traffic signal at Grand Avenue and Macy Street
- Technology upgrades to improve the City’s enterprise computing system and government meeting broadcasts that originate from the Cultural Center
- Drainage improvements on Lakeshore Drive from Chaney Street to Riverside Drive
Residents who live near rural dirt roads will benefit from a gravel road pavement program that began in response to appeals from citizens who have long endured dust problems, ruts and mud in some of the City’s rural areas.
Lakeside High School students will have a safer route to school as a result of SB-821 funded bicycle and sidewalk improvements along Riverside Drive.
Project funding will come from a variety of sources, such as Measure A Gas Tax, development impact fees, state and federal grants and others.
