Projects

The $74 million of bond funding is categorized by three programs of work: Parks, Housing, and Transportation. The projects within these programs supplement projects that are already in the City's Annual Operating Budget and Capital Improvement Program (CIP). 

Coming soon: Please check back in later this year for live versions of the project dashboards and a new interactive project map.

Parks

The $17 million for parks projects supports the completion of major improvements to five parks and recreation facilities; acquiring land for parks; and improving outdoor courts, playgrounds and ball field lighting throughout the city.
