CITY PUTS CAPITAL PROJECTS IN RESIDENTS' HANDS

When residents of South Middle River expressed concern about the safety and appearance of their neighborhood, their local government in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, offered a solution through its Neighborhood Capital Improvement Program (NCIP). Funded with the city's general funds, NCIP provides money for neighborhood capital improvements and ensures that residents are partners in change. Beginning in Fall 1997, the neighborhood association excavated and replaced existing asphalt, reduced a four-lane corridor to two lanes, removed catch basins, constructed new swale areas and upgraded existing ones, constructed a sidewalk, and relocated traffic signs for better visibility. The $60,284 project was completed in January 1999. NCIP provided services including civil and traffic engineering, surveys, inspections, and structural and landscape support.
