FY2014-15 and FY2015-16 Capital Budget

On July 23, 2014 Mayor Edwin M. Lee signed the City’s two-year budget for the fiscal years 2014-15 and 2015-16, with unanimous approval from the Board of Supervisors.

The City’s commitment to Capital in recent years has been growing, and this was a historic capital budget, with $310M appropriated to the City’s General Fund departments over the two-year period. While this budget represents an important step in tackling the City’s growing backlog of capital needs – hovering today at nearly $1 billion – the City must remain committed to infrastructure in the years ahead to ensure that San Francisco is a vibrant, economically strong, and resilient community for generations to come.

FY15 & FY16 General Fund Summary by Expenditure Type ($310M)

Note: The Capital Budget does not represent the City’s entire capital investment, since it excludes bond proceeds. Bond proceeds represent a significant portion of the City’s overall capital investment, including ADA improvements and critical enhancement and renewal needs.

Enterprise Departments

The enterprise departments are currently on a fixed two-year budget covering FY2014-15 and FY2015-16.

Note: PUC’s approved two-year capital budget was through a supplement appropriation in 2014, while Port, Airport, and SFMTA submitted their capital budgets through the City’s Annual Appropriation Ordinance process.

FY15 Highlights

  • $20.5M for Runway Safety Area Program at SFO.
  • $4.5M to repair the Port’s pier structures.
  • $647.2M to support the PUC’s water, waste water and power enterprises’ capital needs.
  • $191.6M for the SFMTA’s Central Subway project.
  • $3.7M for pedestrian improvements by the SFMTA.

Summaries and presentations are available in the CPC Meeting archive for meetings March 17, 2014 and March 31, 2014.
