"Moving Montrose Forward" (MoveMo) is all about equipping Montrose for a successful future by investing in public infrastructure improvements. This includes expansion of our transportation network (incl. pedestrian and bicycle facilities/trails), maintenance of existing roadways, and improvements/maintenance of water, sanitary sewer, and storm sewer utilities.
In 2018 the City invested approximately $18 million in public infrastructure as part of the MoveMo effort. A similar investment of approximately $15 million is planned for 2019 as summarized in the attached PowerPoint from a recent presentation at the Community Forum. Large capital projects currently underway are also summarized in more detail below. Summaries of recently-completed capital projects and street maintenance projects planned for 2019 are included in the adjacent tabs.

The City of Montrose has appropriated approximately $5 million for critical street maintenance work to be performed during the 2018 and 2019 construction seasons. This funding is in addition to routine street maintenance work performed by the city’s Public Works department.
A contractor has been hired to perform a series of street maintenance projects in 2018. The city will apply the portion of the $5 million street maintenance budget remaining from the 2018 work to the 2019 maintenance budget.
