Fiscal Note
The proposed ordinance change will require that 1% of the total budget for capital projects exceeding $5.0 million be set aside for public art. This change will only be applied for capital projects where the City portion of the budget (GO Borrowing, transfer from General Fund, etc.) exceeds $5.0 million. In the 2017 Adopted CIP this would apply to four projects at an estimated cost of $364,000 of additional GO Borrowing.

If adopted, the ordinance will take effect two years after adoption or for the 2019 Capital Improvement Plan.
