Capital Improvement Program

As Denton grows, the City continues to invest in important infrastructure to maintain and improve mobility, health and safety, and quality of life for residents and visitors. The Denton Capital Improvement Program advances many different projects over a number of years, including voter-approved bond projects; water and wastewater construction projects, and electric system improvements, among others.

General Obligation Bond Programs

The following capital improvement funding was authorized by voters as part of the 2012 and 2014 bond programs:

  • $82,110,000 for street improvements (2012 and 2014)
  • $16,565,000 for public safety facilities (2014)
  • $8,545,000 for stormwater drainage and flood control improvements (2014)
  • $11,355,000 for park system improvements (2014)

In an effort to minimize the impact on the tax rate, the City plans to issue these bonds in increments over a six-year period, with the full amount issued by 2020. Progress on the implementation of the bond program is reported in the City's quarterly financial reports.
