A new five-year capital plan to be reviewed on Thursday (Jan. 15) will include priorities for improvements from boardwalk to bay.

City Council will hold a public workshop 6 p.m. Thursday (Jan. 15) to review a proposed five-year capital plan for the years 2015 to 2019.

The plan sets priorities for roads and drainage improvements, beach replenishment projects, boardwalk repairs, dredging of bayside lagoons and a host of other major projects considered vital to quality of life on a barrier island that maintains a fragile coexistence with the ocean.

The meeting is open to the public and to public comment. No formal action will be taken by council. It will be held at the Ocean City Free Public Library’s Chris Maloney Lecture Hall.

City Council and Mayor Jay Gillian’s administration have doubled traditional annual investments in capital improvements in an aggressive existing plan that commits about $10 million annually — taking advantage of historically low interest rates.

The plan designates about $5 million to roads and drainage improvements alone.
