The City Council Ad-Hoc Committee to Consider Capital Improvement Projects for a 2013 General Obligation Bond met on Wednesday, November 7th to review a list of potential capital improvement projects for consideration in a General Obligation Bond ballot question in the spring of 2013. The Committee reviewed the list and directed staff to remove all projects with a cost that exceed the available bond capacity of $12 million.  Direction was also provided for staff to prioritize the remaining projects based on the criteria of safety, economic development benefit, cost of the project, and potential community benefit. Staff will present this list and priority ranking to the Committee at its next meeting on Monday, November 26th at 5:30.
