As the City approaches its centennial anniversary, City Council and staff continue to plan for the future. This will be an ongoing effort that coordinates with the City’s Capital Improvement Plan.

In July, the West University Place City Council will take the first step in these efforts by authorizing a Notice of Intent to issue Certificates of Obligation (COs) for the following projects:

  • New Public Works Maintenance Facility 
  • Buffalo Speedway Construction
  • City Wide Street & Drainage Improvements
  • Cast Iron Water Line Replacement 
  • Milton St Cast Iron Water Line Replacement 
  • New Law Street Water Line to City System
  • Wastewater Treatment Plant Improvements
  • Wastewater Reclamation Project
  • Wakeforest Elevated & Ground Storage Tank Painting

The total amount of COs issued will not exceed the amount of $61,120,000. 

For more information about this plan, contact the City Managers' Office via email or by calling 713-662-5812.

A Certificate of Obligation is a bond that municipalities use to fund major capital projects. They work similarly to your home mortgage, through which you finance a large purchase over time.
