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.

Over the past couple of years, the City has focused on traffic pilot projects to assess whether temporary, short-term solutions can improve safety in certain areas. As each project is completed, public feedback and technical data is collected and a recommendation is made to Council. If a project is considered to be a success in the pilot phase, it is then considered as part of the capital budget for permanent installation. What are your thoughts on this approach to transportation improvements? One project - Veteran's Square  - is noted for 2019. In future years, other projects such as Rawlin's Cross and Plymouth Duckworth Street are being considered which could have more significant costs, potentially as much as $1 million each. Are these improvements priorities for you?

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

There has been no net change in pedestrian safety at Rawlin's Cross; I continue to have near misses on the crosswalks - just as many as when there were traffic lights. Traffic enforcement is critical.

Yes I think that pilot projects are needed and traffic flow and pedestrian and cyclist safety could definitely be improved! I don't like the addition of parking at Veteran's square though as it discourages the use of active transportation.
