The Monroe County Planning Board held an informational meeting for the public Thursday evening regarding the proposed Capital Improvement Program.
The proposed plan looks at the next six years of funding for county highways, parks, public safety facilities, and buildings. The meeting outlined where the almost $414 million of funding will go.
Some big beneficiaries are Monroe Community College, the Department of Aviation, and the Water Authority.
"We're looking at a six year window here; obviously things change from year to year," said Paul Johnson, Associate Planner of CDPD. "Things that we're experiencing in this year's program are the decrease in federal and state funding for a number of our project categories, including the airport, highways, bridges and so forth, so we always have to be kind of nimble and adjust to those changes in funding and our own priorities change too so as we discover new needs for county facilities some priorities will change from year to year."
The Monroe County Planning Board said it hopes to submit a final program plan to the County Executive by April 1.
