Capital Sustainability Steering Committee - March 19

Capital Sustainability Steering Committee Tuesday March 19, 2024 at 1:30pm

On the Agenda:

2025 – 2033 Capital Forecast

To provide an overview of the capital forecast funding requirements identified in the 2025 – 2033 Capital Forecast. The information will guide discussions with the Committee regarding investment priorities in the future.

  • The City of Richmond Hill’s Capital Program provides for new infrastructure that is reflective of a growing population, while balancing the state of good repair of existing assets. The 2025 – 2033 Capital Forecast is $1.678 billion dollars.

  • If all projects were approved the City will be unable to fund all the projects over the nine-year period as it will result in a deficit funding balance of $361.9 million at the end of the forecast period.

  • In light of the funding constraints, now more than ever, the City needs to be certain that proposed capital expenditures address a firmly established need in a fiscally responsible manner.

  • As part of the Financial Sustainability Strategy, the Capital Forecast will need to be refined to bridge the funding gap through a combination of revisiting the assumptions, timing and scoping of projects, or increasing funding through tax, water or stormwater rates or other alternative funding sources to put the Plans into reality.
