Keeping Progress In the Forefront: City of Hallandale Beach Introduces An Impressive $320 Million Capital Improvement Plan
November 2, 2023
The City of Hallandale Beach, Florida, is pleased to announce the rollout of its 5-Year Capital Improvement Plan, with projects totaling more than $320 Million worth of improvements to the City’s Infrastructure, Parks and Recreation Spaces, Public Safety, and Sustainable Development Initiatives, through 2028. The Large-Scale Improvement Plan, which was approved on September 26, 2023, during a City Commission Meeting, marks the City’s commitment to being a leader in Sustainability, Resiliency Initiatives, and keeping progress at the forefront.
“The longevity of our city’s aging Infrastructure is a top priority,” said City Manager, Dr. Jeremy Earle. “By enacting this five-year plan now, we are preparing our city for growth and new development, as well as reducing the impact climate change has on our systems, without compromising the high standards our residents and business owners are accustomed to in Hallandale Beach.”
The plan identifies eight project categories, including Facilities, Mobility, Public Safety, Parks and Recreation, Sustainability, Stormwater, Wastewater, and Water projects.
Shovel-Ready Projects advancing the city are valued at a minimum of $20,000, have an expected lifespan of at least five years, and may result in the creation of a capital asset. Capital assets include facilities, Infrastructure, equipment, and networks that enable the delivery of City services for multiple years.
Aiming to create a greener, more efficient city and enhance residents’ overall quality of life, City beautification efforts that include numerous miles of Bike Paths, Sidewalk Improvements, and thousands of new trees are also planned. In addition, EV Fleet Maintenance, Lift Station Rehabilitation, Water Treatment Plant Improvements, Railroad Crossing Safety, Roadway Improvements, and Traffic Calming Projects are all outlined in the 5-Year Plan.
Funding for the City Improvement Projects is expected to come from a variety of sources, including Federal and State Grants, State Revolving Loans, Reserves, and Utility Revenue Bonds. The City has Earmarked $54,897,045 for projects that will commence in Fiscal Year 2024.
Hallandale Beach currently has over 40 Improvement Projects in the works to Repair and Replace Aging Infrastructure, including upgrades to several Lift Stations and Water Mains.
The 5-Year Plan allows the City to expand its commitment to updating its Infrastructure. The City’s Stormwater System already received a major overhaul, with the addition of a new Pumping Station, Pipe Cleaning and Repair, Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Stormwater Projects, and Curb Inlet and Catch Basin Replacement. The completion of these projects helped the City improve Accessibility and Reduce Flooding during Severe Weather Events.
