400 million has been allocated for property purchases and relocations and highway improvements.
This 400 million is in the scope of a 60 BILLION dollar budget and represents a fraction of the dollars allocated to long term investments in creating jobs and improving the lifestyle of citizens. This is a very important line item in that it is what becomes the engine of future growth in revenues and jobs. It is a prudent investment in the City's future.
That said, most of the property acquisition/relocation expense will be recouped from the developer. The jobs and tax revenue created will more than cover any expenditure in this long term investment.
