Plan By the Numbers

The FY2020-29 Capital Plan generally retains most policies and practices set in prior year plans, including restrictions around issuing debt and priorities for certain capital programs such as the City’s Americans with Disability Act (ADA) barrier removal efforts and street resurfacing. Policies governing the Plan are discussed in the Introduction as well as the Capital Sources chapter. The Plan also lays out a number of goals that continue key objectives from previous years, including robust funding for asset preservation, relocating critical City services to seismically sound facilities, and construction on hundreds of other public infrastructure projects to improve services and quality of life.

As shown in Table 1.1, this Plan captures $27 billion in recommended direct City investments and $12 billion in external agency investment, which total $39 billion in capital improvements citywide. This work is estimated to create over 230,000 local jobs over the next decade.
