City Infrastructure Progress Report
In accordance with direction from the City Council, the Infrastructure and Natural Resources Advisory Committee (INRAC) is currently reviewing all of the City’s infrastructure assets. This review will involve reviewing existing conditions, current asset needs, current maintenance/improvement activities, with the intent to provide funding and priority maintenance recommendations to the City Council.
INRAC was created by the City Council on January 1, 2019 and is a nine member Council appointed committee of Fullerton residents. This committee was a merger of the Energy and Resource Management Committee, Citizen’s Infrastructure Review Committee, and Underground Utilities Advisory Committee. INRAC “shall advise the City Council on the City’s infrastructure, provide input on policies, plans and broad programs as they relate to energy, natural resources, compliance with environmental laws and the protection of the environment in the City of Fullerton, acts as hearing body regarding any and all utility billing disputes and makes recommendations on the establishment of underground utility districts and such other related matters.”
The City of Fullerton is a full service City that was incorporated in 1887. Over the last 132 years, the City has developed its infrastructure – from roads, sidewalks, streetlights, parks, community centers, utility systems, etc. – to provide for the needs of residents and businesses.
Why Is INRAC Reviewing the Infrastructure?
This infrastructure requires regular maintenance, repair/refurbishment, improvement and ultimately replacement. This includes, but not limited to:
Building and Facilities
Storm Drain System
Landscape and Trees
Parks and Trails
Over the next several months, INRAC will be completing an Infrastructure Needs Review that involves determining deficiencies, funding needs to address deficiencies, providing strategies to address deficiencies and needs, priority of each deficiency, and potential funding sources. Recommendations will be considered by City Council in early 2020.
The Committee’s meetings are open to the public and our community is invited to participate in the process. INRAC typically meets the second and fourth Wednesday of each month.
