Nassau County, NY – Today, Nassau County Executive Laura Curran released her proposed 2021-2024 Capital Improvement Plan. The aggressive and comprehensive four-year plan seeks to invest strategically in crucial infrastructure improvements, important environmental initiatives and economic development projects.
“The County has persevered during unprecedented challenges this year, a public health crisis and economic crisis, which have shown us how important it is that we commit to smart and transformative capital projects critical to the health, safety and quality of life of Nassau residents. This four-year capital plan not only seeks to improve our infrastructure and resolve critical needs, but it also will make improvements to attract new residents and businesses so we can continue to meet the challenges of retaining our tax base,” said County Executive Laura Curran.
This $1.6 billion plan will build on infrastructure successes that the County has achieved over the past year, including the robust Roadway Resurfacing program which will continue through 2024 and the completion of major projects including the new state-of the-art NCPD Center for Training and Intelligence and the Family Matrimonial Center. The Capital Plan is focused on improvement of basic infrastructure, county buildings and environmental upgrades that are critical to quality of life and delivery of services to Nassau County residents.
The 4-year Capital Plan aligns with the expectation of reduced funding, due to pandemic related financial challenges, by resequencing and balancing large scale infrastructure improvements with critical asset renewal. The plan successfully adjusts timelines and funding to meet the financial needs of the County, while prioritizing the County’s critical needs. Nassau County is committed to continuing to progress and complete pivotal local improvements that are important to the quality of life in our communities.
