City Council Priority Projects

As Chesapeake continues to define its goals for the future, the City Council has identified a number of projects and initiatives as priority items (PDF). The following list illustrates the funding status for these items.

Funded Projects

These first four projects are considered "funded," as they are fully funded or had total project costs programmed in the Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 to FY 2026 Capital Improvement Plan:

  • Making Great Places
  • City Facilities, Space Needs, and Security
  • Public Works/Public Utilities Facilities Replacement
  • Technology Infrastructure

Underfunded Projects

This second set of projects is considered "underfunded". While some progress was made in these areas in the current Operating Budget and Capital Improvement Plan, additional resources are required to move these projects or initiatives to the funded category.

  • Stormwater
  • Classification and Compensation Study
  • Road Maintenance
  • Chesapeake Connects Capital Construction Costs

Unfunded Projects

The remaining projects and initiatives are "unfunded" as no additional resources were committed to these areas in the FY 2022 budget:

  • Funding Requests from Great Bridge Battlefield and Waterways Museum
  • Chesapeake Connects Operating Costs
  • Public Safety Pay Competitiveness
  • Public Safety Training Facility
  • Re-Branding
  • Increased Tipping Fees
  • Convocation Center
