Peoria Construction Plan Includes Parks, Trails and Roads

Proposed Capital Plan Leverages Federal, Regional Money to Advance City Projects

4/21/2010

Peoria, Ariz. (April 21, 2010) – Aggressive pursuit of federal dollars and a handful of shovel-ready projects have combined to boost the city of Peoria’s proposed capital construction plan, which the City Council discussed in budget workshops that began last week.

Key parts of that plan include completing the Beardsley Road connection to Loop 101, beginning construction of an 80-acre community park in southern Peoria and building key segments of the city trail system along New River. Money to support economic development, including signage and way-finding improvements around the Peoria Sports Complex and a commercial rehabilitation program in Old Town Peoria are part of the proposed plan as well.

The plan takes advantage of considerable city successes in obtaining federal and regional funds for major projects. The Beardsley Connection to Loop 101 was shovel-ready at the right time, and subsequently received federal stimulus dollars and federal street funds administered through the Maricopa Association of Governments. Ultimately, Peoria’s share of construction for that $25 million project is just over $1 million.

All told, Peoria transportation projects have benefited from nearly $88 million in non-local funding, including over $47 million from the county transportation sales tax, $32.5 million from the federal surface transportation program, nearly $4 million in American Reinvestment and Recovery Act stimulus funds, and $4 million in transportation closeout funds through the Maricopa Association of Governments.

“Using this money to build Peoria projects means that we can maintain our priorities in next year’s proposed capital plan,” says Jeff Tyne, Peoria’s budget director. “It has also allowed us to accelerate construction of important projects.”

Although the plan itself is smaller than in previous years, this is primarily a side effect of the growth slowdown.

“Most of the reduction comes from eliminating many development-related projects in the ten-year program, as the need for those projects has clearly diminished.”

Projects in the proposed Fiscal Year 2011 Capital Improvement Budget include:

  • Beginning construction of Peoria’s second community park, southeast of 83rd and Olive avenues;

  • Construction of Centennial Plaza, a recreation and gathering area on the municipal campus;

  • Expansion of the Peoria Community Center at 83rd Drive and Jefferson Street;

  • Renovation of Osuna Park at 83rd and Grand avenues;

  • Construction of neighborhood parks in the vicinity of 93rd Avenue and Cortez Street (Scotland Yard Park), 73rd Drive and Terramar Boulevard (Palo Verde Park), and Lake Pleasant Elementary School (Vistancia Park #2);

  • New River trail segments between Northern and Olive avenues and between Bell Road and Union Hills Drive, and trail underpasses at Grand, Peoria and Olive avenues;

  • Completion of the Beardsley Connection to Loop 101.

The plan also includes money for community works projects, which are smaller local projects that benefit local residents. These kinds of projects include bike lane retrofits, small-scale road widening, sidewalk installation, landscaping improvements and park renovations.
