WALLER INFRASTRUCTURE AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PLAN

The Goodman Corporation (TGC) developed a short-range (5 year) and long range (6-10 year) capital improvement plan CIP designed to capitalize on current and future discretionary funding opportunities and also to inform a long-term capital improvement program for the City of Waller. TGC activities included:

• Development of a vision and goal statement

• Desktop and in-field infrastructure needs assessment

• Development of a program of projects

• Project scoping and benefit quantification

• Environmental assessment of federally eligible projects

• A funding and implementation strategy

• Facilitation of public meetings

Short-term outcomes of this effort include securing $1.1M in Transportation Alternatives-Set Aside funding for the City, TxDOT agreeing to construct a $600,000 access improvement along US-290, and TxDOT agreeing to extend a $4.26M widening and reconstruction project along FM 2920 through the City of Waller.
