City of San Angelo set to discuss Capital Improvement Plan

The City of San Angelo wants to know what matters most to its residents. Plus, how affordable housing could be a reality in the city.

SAN ANGELO, TX - The City of San Angelo is looking for community input for its capital improvement plan. Anthony Wilson with the city says the five-year plan is geared to make the city a much better place to live. 

"All of these things add to the quality of life to our community," said Wilson, in a sit-down interview with Wake Up West Texas's Skyler Nichols. 

The city continues to take public input about what residents would like to see added or even renovated in the city. The plan addressed the city's biggest capital needs like water infrastructure, streets and community parks. 

"We want the community to help guide the city council on what they believe are top priorities," says Wilson.

He says the easiest way is to log-on to the city's website and take a two-minute survey. That can be found, here

The CIP has already proved successful in the city's mission to improve the quality of life, according to Wilson. Recently the city renovated the Murphey Performance Hall, improved the dog park and the airport, and updated many parks. 

Wilson says that doesn't even touch the more than $80-million plan to improve the lower streets. 

In other city news, the city is holding an open forum at the Convention Center, Thurs. Feb., 1 to discuss six proposed housing projects for the city. These projects are seeking state credits, but in order to earn those credits, project leaders must win the approval of the San Angelo city council. If the projects earn that approval, they must compete against similar projects in Midland and Odessa.
