2019 Capital Budget

When Council approved the City's Operating Budget for 2019 on December 10, nearly $20 million was allocated to fund capital projects.

The City uses this budget to cover smaller, usually one-time, capital investments. These projects can range in size and include everything from bridge repair, fleet acquisition, and annual roads rehabilitation to community grants and repairs to City buildings and playgrounds. This funding pot differs from the City's larger multi-year capital program which is cost shared with the Provincial and Federal governments and used for big projects like community centres, parks and underground infrastructure like water main replacements.

While many projects on this year's list have been identified and prioritized by staff and Council, there is an opportunity to provide feedback on how the City balances its investments here for transportation and pedestrian oriented projects.

Review the materials on this page including the full project list and category breakdown of funding. Then visit the Tabs below and tell us what you think. If you have a question not addressed here, or a comment, please use the Question & Comment tool.

Engagement is open until February 26, 2019, at which point Council will review at Committee of the Whole and then vote on and approve the final list at a regular meeting.

  • Capital Budget approved for 2019

    2 months ago

    Council voted to approve the 2019 capital budget on April 1, 2019. The plan includes approximately $24 million for capital projects.

    "We have carefully considered the balance of projects identified for 2019 between pedestrian and active transportation improvements versus road and traffic improvements and listened to the feedback from the public.,” explained Councillor Dave Lane. “The identified projects for 2019 address the highest priority areas and ensure we are making every effort to protect the integrity of our infrastructure.”

    The City’s capital program is determined on an annual basis and funded primarily from an allocation from the City’s annual operating budget. This program is different from the City’s larger cost-shared capital arrangements with the Federal and Provincial Governments, for which the City borrows its share of the cost.
