Current Capital Projects

Overview

The City’s Capital Improvements Projects program is continuing its aggressive efforts to keep up with the needs of our growing community.

It is worth noting that none of the funding for these projects comes from the General Fund. Capital Projects are funded by a variety of developer impact fees, State and Federal grant funds, and the State’s gasoline tax. Nevertheless, a softening economy and budget difficulties at all levels of government make it critical that costs are carefully contained and benefits are clearly demonstrated.
