Infrastructure Management coordinates and manages the programs focused on ensuring longevity and sustainability of the City’s infrastructure such as road, storm and sanitary infrastructure, the City’s internal Geographic Information System (GIS) technology and mapping services, the City’s urban forest infrastructure as well as the long-term Corporate Asset Management Plan and Corporate Sustainability Program.

Proposed Infrastructure Management 2020 Budget

Highlights

Information and condition of infrastructure assets is collected and used as input to the capital program development. Work of this nature is ongoing, allowing staff to utilize the information to create proactive maintenance programs necessary to maximize life cycle of municipal infrastructure and to make the best use of capital funding.

As of the fall of 2019, the Sustainability program was transferred from Community Services and became the responsibility of the Infrastructure Management Division to more closely align Sustainability with the many Infrastructure and Planning Services projects that include sustainability in their goals and with Asset Management. This realignment ensures collaboration among staff on City projects as well as community projects.
