Work on failing infrastructure will not be passed over now that th city council led by COuncilman Todd Gloria followed through on securing a 120 million dollar infrastructure bond. Funds will get used to do the job improving "neighborhoods to levels San Diegans deserve."
The bond funded work was taken up con the council's list for a start following a committee's yes count last week. City council actin on the bond will start up the city's steps planned for infrastructure work.
Time is right for necessary infrastructure work to expand. The level of the backlogged project load will lower. "The backbone of our economy is infrastructure, the district five councilman said. "We have to ivnest in it." Neighborhood infrastructure has to last through a growth decade.
Long overdue, progress is in sight. Infrastructure is the "most critical issue in San Diego," says Gloria. Needs in enighborhoods that have not been relieved now are close to getting handled.
STreet repairs, repairs that have fallen short during the 2000s, take up a large part of the infrastructure plan. Repairs will cost close to a third of the total bond money.
Rebuild San Diego plans will keep city public works workers productive. The Point Loma fire station needs to be rebuilt. And the statin in Hillcrest. GLoria has not settled for delays on the new Skyline Library and San Ysidro Library while library renovation and construction continues in the city. The plan is to replace funds given up to fund other infrastructure projects.
Safety that has not stayed reliable in neighborhoods with old infrastructure will cost a lot of money to restore in the neiighborhoods. Storm drains are on the repair and replace lists. WOrk replacing large numbers will remain unyielding. Public facilities, after going downhill and failing, guarantee public works workers will have hard work to do.The city's parks again are on a steps for progress list in the city work plan.
