Streets and Alleys
48% of the City’s alleys are in very poor condition. It is estimated to cost over $70M to reconstruct these alleys. The City budgets each year $750k from refuse fund, around $200k from 0.50 property tax dedication to alleys, and utilizes bond funds. For example, in the 2015 Bond Program, $2M was approved. Alleys are assessed and prioritized based on their condition, from this information the City developed the Top 50 alleys to be reconstructed. As funds allow, these alleys are designed and reconstructed. Recently, five alleys have been completed and 12 more are being designed for construction in 2018.
