On July 9, 2014, with the adoption of the Southeast Policy Area Strategic Plan, the City Council directed staff to prepare a plan for delivery of infrastructure to the employment areas (the EOD, or Employment-Oriented-Development) of the Plan.
While work on this plan is underway, it is important to note the following:
- The triangle parcel located south of Whitelock Parkway and adjacent to Hwy 99 (the North-East Park) has adequate infrastructure in the vicinity and off-site facility improvements are not needed.
- The balance of the EOD is programmed along Kammerer Road between Lotz Parkway and extending west past Big Horn Boulevard (South and West Parks). These roads need to be widened and/or extended and are eligible facilities in the City Roadway Fee Program. While the fee program anticipates reimbursing developers for the improvements, the City may reevaluate the Five-Year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) to advance this City-delivered infrastructure. In addition to roads, sewer facility improvements are necessary. While the County fee program will reimburse whoever installs the improvements, it will not advance the delivery. Therefore, the City may consider options for advancing the delivery of the various infrastructure elements.
