2017 Capital Budget

2017-capital-proposed-web-version_page_001The 2017 proposed capital budget was drafted to connect directly with Burlington’s Strategic Plan 2015-40.

Aligning the budget to the strategic plan provides accountability between what is achieved and the cost to you – the taxpayer.

The 2017 proposed capital budget is approximately $56 million, with a 10-year program of $667.8 million. The capital budget has a strong focus on infrastructure renewal projects reflective of the city’s commitment to the asset management plan and the strategic plan. This means we are focused on the city’s infrastructure and ensuring roads and buildings are in good condition and properly maintained.

The City of Burlington’s proposed 2017-2026 capital budget of $667.8 million is allocated into the following eight categories:

  • Roadways $305.7 million
  • Storm Water Management $ 55.8 million
  • Facilities & Buildings $ 112.1 million
  • Parks & Open Space $ 66.6 million
  • Parking $ 19.7 million
  • Fleet Vehicles & Equipment $ 70.4 million
  • Information Technology $ 26.2 million
  • Local Boards $ 11.3 million
