Public Involvement is a key part of Capital Improvement
The construction of roads, intersections, sidewalks, trails and bridges is a major part of Columbia’s Capital Improvement Program managed by Columbia Public Works. Public input is sought at every step of the process, whether it is voting for funding, expressing views to the City Council, or participating in neighborhood meetings to review engineering plans.
Columbia Public Works coordinates with the City’s Finance Department, Community Development, Columbia Utilities, Vision Zero and departments and agencies to prioritize construction projects based on funding schedules, traffic management challenges, safety concerns, scheduling conflicts and logistical issues.
