Plans for a few city projects have been shelved after being revealed as a “top priority” by the city’s planning department.
The city’s executive director, Michael Ahern, told The Associated Press that the project would have cost the city $1.1 billion to complete.
He said the project will be “under consideration for some time.”
The plan calls for a new parking garage in downtown, the relocation of some traffic lights from one part of the city to another, new sidewalks, a new bus rapid transit line and more.
It would have been funded with federal grants and a $100 million loan from the state.
Ahern said it is “important to look at all of the options” for the future of the proposed projects.
The planning department had asked the city for a draft of the plan and said it would be ready for public comment by the end of the year.
The project was one of several city projects Ahern announced as top priorities during his first week in office.
He also announced a $400 million program for the elderly and disabled.
