The City of Hallandale Beach has rolled out its Five-Year Capital Improvement Plan, with projects totaling more than $320 million worth of improvements to the City’s infrastructure, parks and recreation spaces, public safety and sustainable development initiatives through 2028. The large-scale improvement plan marks the City’s commitment to being a leader in sustainability and resiliency initiatives and keeping progress at the forefront.
“The longevity of our city’s aging infrastructure is a top priority,” said City Manager Jeremy Earle. “By enacting this five-year plan now, we are preparing our City for growth and new development, as well as reducing the impact climate change has on our systems, without compromising the high standards our residents and business owners are accustomed to in Hallandale Beach.”
The plan identifies eight project categories: facilities, mobility, public safety, parks and recreation, sustainability, stormwater, wastewater and water projects. Shovel-ready projects advancing the City are valued at a minimum of $20,000, have an expected lifespan of at least five years and may result in the creation of a capital asset. Capital assets include facilities, infrastructure, equipment and networks that enable the delivery of City services for multiple years.
Aiming to create a greener, more efficient city and enhance residents’ overall quality of life, the City will have future beautification efforts including miles of bike paths, sidewalk improvements and thousands of new trees. In addition, electric vehicle fleet maintenance, lift station rehabilitation, water treatment plant improvements, railroad crossing safety, roadway improvements and traffic calming projects are outlined in the Five-year Plan.
Funding for the city improvement projects is expected to come from sources including federal and state grants, state revolving loans, reserves and utility revenue bonds. The City has earmarked $54.9 million for projects that will commence in FY 2024.
Hallandale Beach has over 40 improvement projects in the works to repair and replace aging infrastructure, including upgrades to several lift stations and water mains. The Five-Year plan allows the City to expand its commitment to updating its infrastructure. The City’s stormwater system already received a major overhaul, with the addition of a pumping station, pipe cleaning and repair, Community Development Block Grant stormwater projects, and curb inlet and catch basin replacement. Completing these projects helped the City improve accessibility and reduce flooding during severe weather events.
