Proposed Projects using Increased Street Maintenance Fee
Since the Transportation System Plan was implemented in 2014, the City has completed or is in process of completing 12 pathway project locations. However, there are more than $94 million unfunded Pathways Projects in the current Capital Improvement Plan FY2021/22- 2026/27. The SMF could be used to increase funding for these Pathways Projects, specifically those closest to schools.
In addition to pathways, the SMF funds could be used for:
- Sidewalk construction and improvements
- Pathway construction and maintenance
- Curb ramps
- Bicycle lanes
- ADA accessibility and compliance
- Neighborhood traffic calming
- Stormwater facilities associated with pedestrian facilities
Projects benefiting from the proposed increased SMF funds will:
- Provide safer access to neighborhoods, schools, business districts, and recreation areas
- Improve the walkability and accessibility of the community
- Implement priorities outlined in the City’s ADA Transition Plan
- Provide increased funding to priority pathway projects identified in the City’s Transportation System Plan
