Citizens Bond Task Force Seeks Community Input

The City Council has appointed an 18-member task force to make recommendations for future capital improvement projects in the city over the next decade.

The task force is expected to meet with city staff the next several months to identify future needs. Their recommendations will address a number of projects including street and transportation improvements; parks and library development; public safety needs and other municipal facilities. Residents are encouraged to provide input on projects to the task force by Oct. 31 through its online feedback form.

Task force meeting dates and times will be posted on the city website.

After the task force presents its recommendations, the council is expected to call a bond election for May 2020. The last bond program election was in 2006. Voters approved all propositions.

The mayor and council members each recommended two appointees to the task force. The appointees are:

Sharon Barbosa Crain, Bob Bourgeois, Loren Byers, David Cole, Mark Cronenwett, Tim Fooks, Adam Fritcher, Gustavo Garcia, Mike Gregory, Sushil Patel, Janie Perelman, Hammond Perot, David Pfaff, Clint Rain, Nicole Kintop Smith, Sam Reed, Mohammed Shaphy and Heather Stroup.
