Planning Commission OKs Improvement Program

Article excerpt

The Oklahoma City Planning Commission approved the Capital Improvements Program 1995-1999 during its regular meeting Thursday.

The commission initially discussed the program during a special meeting prior to its regularly scheduled meeting May 12.

The staff recommended that seven street projects formerly suggested for removal be transferred from the funded bond issue program of the city to the unfunded Capital Improvements Program.

This program is a five-year plan for capital purchases to be made by the city and related trusts during the planning period. Paul Shinn, budget director, described its various uses as coordination of capital projects and requests with a goal of best meeting the service and facility needs of the community, creating a process and system to evaluate all project requests, providing a general framework for funding capital projects, beginning the process of implementing those capital projects that most closely comply with the land use and other plans and creating a realistic and achievable schedule for project completion.

Under city ordinance, a Capital Improvements Program covering five years must be proposed by the city manager every two years. The city has adopted Capital Improvement Programs in 1989, 1990 and 1992. The 1994 plan is the next regularly scheduled plan.
