WHAT IS PROPOSED

$13 MILLION ANNUALLY dedicated to improving and building streets from curb to curb.
4 TIMES more neighborhood streets rehabilitated (300+ blocks annually).
25 PERCENT of funding to accommodate City growth and promote private economic development.
TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY through budget approvals, annual reports to City leaders and a citizen oversight committee.
DEDICATED SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS A portion of funds devoted to the design of railroad grade crossing safety improvements.
