Infrastructure Advisory Group

The Infrastructure Advisory Group will assess the needs, prioritization, practices and funding of the City’s infrastructure programs in order to identify areas to sustain and improve program effectiveness for the next 10 to 15 years.

The group will consider:

  • Local, collector and thoroughfare street infrastructure to include pavement, curb and gutters, sidewalks, and sidewalk ramps.
  • Stormwater infrastructure to include storm sewers, concrete-lined ditches, reinforced box culverts and stormwater treatment facilities.
  • Traffic infrastructure includes street lights, traffic signals and roundabouts.

The group will also evaluate street trees, landscaping and other green infrastructure as part of the infrastructure, which provide stormwater runoff and other environmental benefits.

Group members will participate in the development of recommendations to the Public Works Committee and City Council related to program practices, procedures and methods; City policies, ordinances and resolutions; and long-term financial strategies.

Learn more about the group’s purpose in the May 3, 2021 City Council meeting committee report establishing the Infrastructure Advisory Group.
