City of Edmond Public and Capital Improvement Projects
From road improvements to new public facilities, the City of Edmond is continuously adding and improving public amenities. If you would like to learn more about some of the current and recent projects, please check out the interactive map through the link below.
What are Capital Improvement Projects?
Capital Improvement Projects are the major projects that expand, renovate, and replace city infrastructure. Additionally, a Capital Improvement Project can be new construction or land acquisition. Examples of capital improvement projects include the expansion of the Edmond Animal Shelter in 2020, the renovation of the historical museum in 2019, and the Railroad Quiet Zones completed in 2020. This is not to mention the numerous street projects providing safe roads and sidewalks.
How are Capital Improvement Projects funded?
Current and recent capital improvement projects are often funded through two sales tax ordinances:
- City of Edmond Sales Tax Ordinance of 2000 (extension of 1996 CIP Sales Tax): Passed by Edmond voters to begin October 1, 2001, this tax levies an additional tax of ¾ of 1% upon the gross proceeds or gross receipts derived from all sales taxable under the Oklahoma State Tax Code. This is commonly referred to as the 2000 CIP Sales Tax. Click here for the full text of the ordinance.
- City of Edmond Sales Tax Ordinance of 2011: Originally known as the Public Safety Center Sales Tax, this ordinance was first passed in 2011 to fund the construction of the Public Safety Center. Following the completion of that project, Edmond voters passed the extension and amendment to the original ordinance in 2016, resulting in a 10-year, ½ of one percent special purpose sales tax, which began April 1, 2017 and will end March 31, 2027. This is now commonly referred to as the 2017 CIP Sales Tax. Click here for the full text of the ordinance.
