Capital Improvement Projects
Capital Improvement Projects are the major projects that expand, renovate, and replace city facilities and 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 that ensure citizens have safe roads to drive on and sidewalks to walk on.

How are Capital Improvement Projects funded?
 
Current and recent capital improvement projects are 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 excise tax of ¾ of 1% upon the gross proceeds or gross receipts derived from all sales taxable under the Oklahoma State Tax Code.

  • City of Edmond Sales Tax Ordinance of 2011: Commonly known as the Public Safety Center Sales Tax, this ordinance was originally passed in 2011. Edmond voters passed the extension and amendment to the original ordinance in 2016, resulting in a 10-year, ½ of one percent (.50%) special purpose sales tax, which began April 1, 2017 and will end March 31, 2027.
