What projects has the Special Infrastructure Sales Tax funded in the past?

A full list of projects since 2013, the last renewal, is listed below. In summary, the 1/4 cent sales tax has funded roadway improvements, new sidewalks and sidewalk repairs, stormwater pipe replacement and repair, improvements to our parks and park maintenance. In addition, the sales tax has helped the City leverage grant resources, such as the Community Development Block Grant, which has awarded the City more than $200,000 in recent years to complete improvements to Birch and Rosewood Streets.
