South Milwaukee: comprehensive plan report
Capital budget program, pp. 48 ff.
I Capital Budget Program As Long Range planning for South Milwaukee began to take hold in 1955 and 1956, the City Plan Commission set to work to compile the history of capital improvement needs in the City. It established the known historical trends and in 1957 the Commission completed the study of physical needs as they saw them at that time, and in accordance with the Master Plan prepared by Kurt Bauer in 1955, they issued a 4-part document creating a total capital budget program for the years 1960 through 1965 with a 3-year (1966-69) future allocation column as well. The Capital Budget Program contained the following divisions: Part I - Presentation; a general explanation of the program, the necessity for such a program, how it operates and what can be accom- plished by its use. Part IIl- Summary of Long Range Improvement Program. Part III - Operational Budget Recommendations. Part IV - Analysis of Long Range Capital Improvements and Analysis of Increased Operational Needs. The document was submitted to the Common Council for adoption in 1957 and has been used as a guide since that time in the preparation of each year's budget and for the control and scheduling of capital expenditures. This present Master Plan Report will, of course, if it is to be im- plemented, add many new items to the already scheduled list of public improvements. It is not within the scope of this report to fully explore the costs of the proposals set forth here, but at such time as this pro- posed Comprehensive Plan is adopted as the new guide plan for future development, the cost of projects contained herein will have to be care- fully estimated and placed into the total schedule of the existing Capital Budget Program. Just as each year's review of the program brings out possible new departmental requirements which must be assimilated into the program, so must a major change in the Comprehensive Plan be assimilated into the total program. With the ongoing Capital Budget Program that South Milwaukee now has, this is an easy and natural renovation to an already successful operating procedure. 48 I
