City Puts Measure Y Funds to Use This Summer

This summer, the Public Works Department is making improvements to City streets, parks and facilities, and storm drains - all made possible by Measure Y funding - your half-cent sales tax at work.  


Public infrastructure investment not only enhances the safety and usability of City facilities but also helps stimulate the economy. Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody's, offers an impressive estimate of the multiplier effect of infrastructure spending, calculating that every dollar of increased infrastructure spending generates a $1.59 increase in economic activity.  


Summer street improvement projects include: paving and microsurfacing streets near the Downtown and surrounding area; improving curb ramps throughout the City for better accessibility; and upgrading the signal at the Foothill Blvd. and Tassajara Dr. intersection. Parks and Facilities projects include replacing the 50-year-old restroom at Santa Rosa Park and constructing a new roof for Meadow Park's recreation building. There are also several storm drain repair  and replacement projects scheduled throughout the City.
