Community Benefits

Extending the life of public buildings is a responsible way to manage investments made with taxpayer money. Proper maintenance and needed renovations paid for by inexpensive funding sources  saves money by avoiding deterioration and expensive emergency repairs or rebuilds.

Keeping our community’s landmark sports and entertainment facilities in good shape encourages continued private development, helping to boost the local economy with stimulated economic activity.

Investments like these promote the arts, sports and entertainment in our community, protecting and nurturing our cultural heritage and improving our quality of life.

Examples from the 2007 Bond Program

Numerous City-owned buildings benefited from renovation, maintenance or upgrades funded by the most recent bond program.
