Public Improvements Advisory Committee (PIAC) LogoThe primary function of the Public Improvements Advisory Committee (PIAC) is to solicit resident input and make recommendations regarding both the citywide and neighborhood portions of the capital budget. The PIAC holds a series of public hearings every year beginning  in early summer. These hearings provide residents with an opportunity to express their opinions, concerns and project requests regarding the forthcoming capital budget. If you submit more than one request, place a priority number on all PIAC form submittals indicating which is the most important improvement in your neighborhood or association. We encourage cooperation instead of competition among the neighborhoods and residents we serve in the PIAC program.

Eligible PIAC projects include: storm water drainage/flooding-bridges/streets/roadways | public property improvements-street improvements | municipal buildings improvements  | community centers | street lighting/traffic lights | curbs and gutters | park facility improvements | monuments/fountains | ball fields/swimming pools.

The PIAC consists of 13 people, two from each council district and a chairperson, appointed by the mayor and City Council. The group was created in 1983 by City Council Resolution 55417 and reaffirmed by City Council Resolution 62031. This committee finishes its year by submitting its balanced five-year capital improvements program and neighborhood recommendations in early February.

The deadline date to submit a request is August 31, 2020. New requests will be held for the next year’s funding.
