Capital Improvement Projects and Planning


The Projects and Planning Division is responsible for the planning, design, rehabilitation and inspection of Thornton parks and open space capital projects.  Each year, the city receives requests from residents for improvements throughout the city.  During the annual budget cycle, an ongoing list is updated and reviewed for consideration.  All requests received during the current year, and requests from past years that have not been funded, compete for annual funding along with other city needs for roads, water/sewer, traffic, parks maintenance and repairs.
