ANAHEIM, CA - (July 21, 2014) - Anaheim residents can look forward to nearly 100 capital improvement projects for 2014/15. As part of the City of Anaheim’s $1.6 billion approved budget for this fiscal year, the City is committed to the community and improving its neighborhoods and infrastructure.
Capital improvements projects include:
By approving the Fiscal Year 2014/15 budget, the City Council committed to a community investment of more than $316 million for new or improved parks and community centers, continuing street and transportation improvements, and utility system upgrades. The FY 2014/15 budget, approved on June 17, represents an increase of 3.7% from the previous year.
Based on the five-year General Fund plan, the City will include an additional $2.9 million in public safety and neighborhood service enhancements on an ongoing basis.
