Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution seeks to combine several existing capital programs into a new program called Safe Streets Madison. The capital programs consolidated to create the new program are:
· Neighborhood Traffic Management & Pedestrian Improvements, Engineering - Major Streets
· Safe Routes to School, Engineering - Bicycle and Pedestrian
· Ped/Bike Enhancement, Engineering - Bicycle and Pedestrian
· Vision Zero, Traffic Engineering

The 2022 Capital Budget is currently being developed. If not reflected in the 2022 Executive Capital budget, the above changes would need to be made through an amendment prior to budget adoption or a separate resolution after adoption.
