Capital improvements take high priority in Kyle for 2021

Securing funding for marquee capital improvement projects throughout the city was a key focus in 2020.

City Manager Scott Sellers said completing those projects will take top priority throughout 2021.

“This past year the City Council set strategic goals and initiatives, which included a variety of high-impact capital improvements throughout the city,” Sellers said.

Crucial to the continuation of multiple infrastructure, development and transportation projects was the passage of two bonds in November—Proposition A, a

$37 million bond for the Public Safety Center, and Proposition B, a $10 million bond for public parks.

An allocation of $76.7 million for capital improvements in fiscal year 2020-21 was another key component, Sellers said. “As Kyle continues to manage its rapid growth, it is imperative that we balance all aspects of planning and development, focusing not just on safety and security but quality-of-life initiatives as well,” he said.
