West Hollywood is preparing a capital improvement program, a 'wish list of projects, topped by a $25-million civic center and $10.5 million for new parking facilities.
The city Public Facilities Board has approved the list, which now goes to the city Planning Commission.
The City Council will make the ultimate decision on which projects survive, either in June or shortly after the start of the next fiscal year, which begins July 1.
Councilman Alan Viterbi, who is scheduled to become mayor on June 1, said that preparation of the capital improvement budget represented an important step in the development of the 2 1/2-year-old city.
"We now are at the stage where we can decide what projects we need and how to finance them," Viterbi said. "Our first goals were to provide basic city services and to establish planning goals for West Hollywood."
