Pedestrian & Cyclist Safety (PACS) Fund

The PACS fund was approved by City Council to fund projects that makes the community more walkable and bikeable, including improvements proposed in the City’s Comprehensive Plan, the City’s comprehensive Bicycle Transportation Plan and the City’s Active Routes to School Comprehensive Plan.

Revenue for the PACS fund will be generated by a franchise fee ordinance that imposes a fee of $1.45/month on residential customers of Xcel Energy and $1.45/month on residential customers of CenterPoint Energy. There are higher franchise fees for commercial customers of both utilities. Those fees are $2.90/month, $9/month and $40/month, depending on the size of the customer.

The revenue in the PACS fund will be used exclusively for specific improvements to the City’s non-motorized transportation network. The non-motorized transportation network includes sidewalks, trails, and other bicyclist-related facilities. Other possible costs the PACS fund would pay for include maintenance of current sidewalks, signage, lighting, pedestrian crossing signals and street striping.
