01. Executive Summary

Pay-As-You-Go Program

The Plan proposes funding the majority of the City’s ongoing annual needs with General Fund dollars through the Pay-As-You-Go (Pay-Go) Program. These are typically smaller investments to maintain facilities and infrastructure in a state of good repair or fund critical infrastructure needs. Within the Pay-Go Program, projects are categorized as Routine Maintenance, ADA Facilities, ADA Public Right-of-Way, Street Resurfacing, Critical Enhancements, Facility Renewal, and Right-of-Way Infrastructure Renewal.

Table 1.3 provides a summary of the Plan’s planned funding for the Pay-Go Program by expenditure category. The planned investment over 10 years is $1.2 billion. This level is $1 billion lower than the previous Plan funding level due to budget impacts in the early years resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Some of this loss in revenue is made up by Certificate of Participation (COP) investments described on the following pages.
