Bookmark and Share

Sioux Falls Mayor Mike Huether has announced some big projects for the city. In his 2014 through 2018 Capital Program, the city is set to invest over $429 million into city projects over the next five years.

“Bring on the growth, bring on the opportunity, we are ready,” said Sioux Falls Mayor Mike Huether.

In a meeting held Tuesday, Sioux Falls Mayor Mike Huether presented the City Council with his Capital Program recommendation for the next five years.

 In 2014 alone, Huether said the city will invest more than $83 million into capital projects. And from 2014 to 2018, more than $429 million will be invested.

Forty one percent of the program's funds or $174.6 million will be invested into highways and streets.

“Four dollars out of every $10 of this plan will go towards repairing, rebuilding, replacing and strengthening our roads,” said Huether.
     
Thirty two percent or $136.2 million will be invested into utilities, focusing on the city’s water and sewage.
     
Huether said nearly $50 million will be invested into the city's parks over the next five years.

“Southwest Sioux Falls new park, northwest Sioux Falls new park, southeast Sioux Falls new park, and northeast Sioux Falls, new park,” Huether said.

A little more than $1 million of that will go towards the city's bike trail system. Another million is for two new dog parks. Also in Huether's plan, over $19 million will be invested into an indoor aquatic center.

“We are refocusing on living well,” said Huether.

Finally, $4.6 million is expected to be invested into public safety.

“We plan to build two new fire stations here in the city,” Huether said.

Huether reminded Sioux Falls City Council members that even though the city made great strides improving its infrastructure in 2012, there's a lot more work to do.

Also in the plan is a recommendation $3.6 million be invested to further improve the River Greenway downtown.
