Value of public infrastructure constructed by development projects.
Value of public infrastructure completed
The total dollar value of public infrastructure built and completed each year through private development projects is tracked by the Director's Office. This includes the cost to construct new or improved streets, sidewalks, water and sanitary mains, traffic signals and transit/bus stop improvements. (This number does not include the value of utility undergrounding.) This information is measured in millions of dollars and can fluctuate depending upon the completed projects within each year.
Measuring the dollar value of public infrastructure built each year by developers helps the County track how its policies related to development result in public infrastructure improvements. By negotiating with, or requiring developers to construct public infrastructure in association with their projects, the County ensures that its infrastructure can support new development projects and the public at large. This measure supports the MTP Goal 5: Manage Effectively and Efficiently.
Over the last nine years over $48.2 million in public infrastructure has been constructed by developers in association with new development. In 2014, with completed development down from the peak in 2008, $3.2 million worth of public infrastructure was completed throughout the county in the past year. On average, approximately $5.3 million of public infrastructure projects were completed per year over the past nine years. The amount of funds spent each year fluctuates making it difficult to determine an overall trend.
