Capital projects

Projects identified as 'capital projects' are required to provide for the needs of a growing city through capital expenditure that is projected over the next 10 years through the Long-Term Council Community Plan. The projects are listed by activity. Some projects identified are historic, but have capacity to provide for future growth.
