(Dublin, OH) – Dublin City Council adopted the 2019-2023 Five-Year Capital Improvements Program at their meeting Monday, October 22.
Funding priorities include maintaining existing assets and infrastructure, and completing construction of Riverside Crossing Park within a three-year time frame.
“The 2019-2023 Capital Improvements Program reflects City Council and the Administration’s continued investment in the City in a fiscally responsible manner. The $194.3 million program, largely funded through 25% of the City’s income tax revenue dedicated to capital improvements, includes $77.3 million in funding for maintenance of existing assets and infrastructure. The remaining amount will be spent on enhancements and new infrastructure that will benefit residents now and in the future,” said Angel Mumma, Director of Finance.
Notable projects slated for funding in the CIP include:
- Riverside Crossing Park – $17,725,000 for construction of east park upper plaza and lower plazas, and west plaza site improvements (2019), west plaza site improvements, east park open space and events lawn, and retaining walls and stairs along Riverside Drive (2020), west park path improvements, site stabilization and restoration (2021)
- Dublin Community Pool North – $7,150,000 for design (2019) and construction (2020)
- Shier Rings Road – $11.2 million for design (2019), site acquisition and utility relocation (2020), and construction (2021) to upgrade the existing two-lane road to a four- to five-lane divided road with median, curb and gutter
About the CIP
The CIP is a five-year outlook for anticipated capital projects and is reviewed and updated annually by the City. These projects are primarily related to improvements in transportation, parks, utilities and facilities. The CIP represents a long-term financial plan, which establishes priorities, identifies project costs and phasing, identifies funding sources, and serves as a planning document for capital improvements. The projects and their timing are reviewed annually by City Council, and adopted by Ordinance. As a planning document, the CIP is a fluid document being revisited many times during the course of the year by City Council, and the City’s Administration. Annual revisions to the CIP are based on many considerations, including adjustments in funding sources, construction timing, and the changing needs and priorities of the City.
In developing the Five-Year CIP, several elements are taken into consideration:
- City Council goals
- Community surveys
- Economic development opportunities
- Grant funding opportunities
- Commitments made by the City of Dublin
- Maintenance and rehabilitation of existing City facilities and infrastructure
- Technology improvements
- Enhancements within the community
The 2019-2023 CIP was developed in support of the City’s Strategic Focus Areas, with emphasis placed on the safety of the public and employees, the City’s overall fiscal health, and promoting economic vitality.
