The Commission develops a five-year Capital Improvement Project Plan annually for submission to the City Council outlining the City's infrastructure needs for the future. In addition, the Commission reviews public works conditions imposed on development projects, traffic circulation and congestion issues as well as parking restriction needs and authorizes changes consistent with state and local requirements.
