Neighborhoods

Improve infrastructure in established neighborhoods showing signs of distress and emerging high-growth areas in need of connectivity. Infrastructure improvements include sidewalks, streetscape, curbs and gutters, storm drainage, landscaping and pedestrian lighting.

$55 million on this year’s ballot to fund capital projects and address immediate infrastructure needs in our city’s older neighborhoods and emerging high-growth areas.

  • Support the Comprehensive Neighborhood Improvement Program (CNIP) to improve our neighborhoods showing signs of distress.
  • Link neighborhoods with employment centers, parks, transit and schools.
  • Connect streets, sidewalks, trails and bike lanes to enhance existing community assets and provide more mobility/transportation options.
  • Leverage investments to maximize public/private partnerships.
  • Public/Private Redevelopment Opportunities.

Past and future plans

In 2014, $20,000,000 went to neighborhoods showing signs of distress and emerging high-growth areas in need of connectivity. Infrastructure improvements include sidewalks, streetscape, curbs and gutters, storm drainage, landscaping and pedestrian lighting.

The Community Investment Plan (CIP) calls for bond referenda to approve additional funds in 2018 and 2020 to complete improvements for the six communities:

  • West Trade/Rozzelles Ferry
  • Prosperity Village
  • Central/Albemarle/Shamrock
  • Whitehall/Ayrsley
  • Sunset/Beatties Ford
  • SouthPark
