Help the City decide which projects to fund in five-year plan

City planners have a lot of construction projects in mind, but not all of them can get funded. Share your thoughts on which ones matter to you most at one of a series of public comment sessions.

The sessions center on the Capital Improvements Plan, which is the City’s construction priority list for 2018 to 2022. There are now more than $988 million in spending requests for that period, including projects such as new bridges, street paving, traffic control measures, sidewalk maintenance, bike and pedestrian improvements, sewers, water mains and public buildings. Based on feedback, the Capital Long-Range Improvements Committee will make recommendations to the City Council and mayor on which programs should get funding.

There are three public comment sessions coming up:

6:30-8 p.m. Tuesday, May 2
Eastside Neighborhood Services
1700 Second St. NE

6:30-8 p.m. Wednesday, May 3
Sabathani Center, Room J (Third Floor)
310 East 38th St.

6-8 p.m. Thursday, May 11
City Hall, Room 319
350 South Fifth St.
(Joint public hearing with the Minneapolis Planning Commission)
