Sustaining City infrastructure begins with regular roadway resurfacing and proper drainage. Many of the roads in Coral Springs are approaching the 20-year mark. The bond for Streets and Drainage would provide funding to continue to implement the City’s Pavement Management Plan, resurfacing 85 mile lanes of roads across the City, at a faster pace.

Proper drainage is essential to keeping our neighborhoods safe during periods of heavy rain. The G.O. Bond will make needed improvements to the existing drainage system in areas of the City that are most vulnerable to flooding (Westchester, Meadows and Dells and the Corporate Park) – a quality of life improvement that cannot be understated.
