Lynwood’s 5-year $81-million Capital Improvement Plan was recently approved by the City Council and includes an extensive infrastructure repair and improvement schedule to be implemented throughout the entire City.
This long-term investment plan in our City’s infrastructure is important to all of us. It addresses needed improvements to our water system, our streets and sidewalks, park and recreation facilities, traffic, speed humps, and overall city facilities through 84 projects identified by city staff and the City Council.
Over $40 million of the Capital Improvement Plan is expected to be spent on projects that will start or be completed by June 2023.
If you’re wondering who is going to pay for this, our city leadership has consolidated a number of funding sources that are dedicated to these types of projects. These sources include State of California and LA County funding through bond measures that have been passed by the voters.
In the next few years, the expected spending of over $40 million is as follows:
• Water – nearly $13 million
• Parks and Recreation – $9.78 million
• Streets- over $8.8 million
• Sewer – $4.5 million
• Facilities – $3.69 million
• Traffic Improvements – $3.4 million
• Sidewalk Improvements – $800,000
These are great times for the city of Lynwood. Improving our infrastructure will improve our quality of life, enhance public safety and provide an even better city environment for our seniors, families and
The 5 Year CIP Plan also identified additional projects and priorities so that as the City seeks and identifies additional Federal, State and local grants or alternate sources of revenues we are ready and prepared to proceed with “shovel ready” projects. Future funding is expected to be competitive and the City wants to be ahead of the game and ready to compete with anyone in the State.
