|This project is the reconstruction of the 4500 block of Larch Lane, 4600 block of Cedar Street, 500 block of Chelsea Street, and 4600 block of Mimosa Drive. These four street segments are four of the five street blocks included in the final phase of the Bonds for Better Bellaire 2016 Group C Phase 3 Streets and Drainage Program.|
The reconstruction includes replacing the existing concrete/asphalt street pavement and upgrading the storm sewer system for a 100-year storm event. The project is funded through a CDBG grant program expected to reimburse 100% of the construction expenditures ($4,095,702).
|This project represents the third phase of waterline infrastructure improvements associated with the Bonds for Better Bellaire 2016 Program. The scope of work for this project includes the replacement of approximately 30 City blocks of water and wastewater line infrastructure that has reached, or is nearing the end of its 30 to 50 year useful service life. The majority of the work for this project entails the replacement of cast iron waterlines that are 50 years in age or more. Most water line breaks and ruptures in Bellaire are associated with older cast iron waterline infrastructure. The older the cast iron lines get, the more brittle they become. Upon completion of this work, the City will have replaced more than 12 miles (63,360 L.F. ) of aged water and wastewater line infrastructure, which improves system reliability for the residents of Bellaire and reduces operational costs associated with the remediation of emergency line breaks commonly associated with the cast iron lines. The project is estimated to take 18 months and be complete before September 2024.|
The City of Bellaire Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is a process by which the city develops a multi-year plan for major capital expenditures. This plan is created from goals and objectives outlined in the Comprehensive Plan, City Council Strategic Areas of Focus, Department Level Service Plans as well as operational needs.
The Development Services Department manages the development of the annual five-year CIP. Only projects for the current fiscal year are considered part of the adopted budget. Adopting the CIP does not appropriate funds for future years but are shown in future years as guidance for planning expenditures each year.
No funds have been spent on any FY 2022 CIP projects, except for the last two items: vehicles, equipment, and technology purchases in the Vehicle, Equipment, and Technology Fund (VET).
VET fund - 1st quarter expenses using new budget funds were for vehicle leases.
During the FY2022 budget process, Council was presented with Management Projects from each department developed to provide service enhancements and review and develop policies that will allow the City to become more efficient.
