Capital Improvement Projects
The Highland Village City Charter calls for submission to Council of a five-year capital budget. This provides an opportunity for Council to see a multi-year outlook for planning purposes. The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is presented at the beginning of budget discussions to provide the framework for consideration of the current year’s budget and resulting tax rate. These projects are non-operational, "big ticket" items that typically require outside funding sources such as debt issuance, grant, or lease/purchase arrangements.
Here is an update on the Capital Improvement Projects planned for 2023-2024. You can also view the CIP project interactive map to see the location, a description and images if they are available.

Northeast 18” Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Project – The City’s existing 18-inch sewer main along Edgewood Dr. is identified to be rehabilitated by pipe bursting, a trenchless method of restoration. The City has awarded a contract to a contractor to construct the project. The project is anticipated to be constructed in summer, 2023 and has 130 calendar days to complete.
Replacement of force mains from wastewater lift stations 2 and 7 project – The waste water force mains associated with lift stations 2 and 7 have been identified to be replaced. List station 2 is location along Highland Shores Blvd. in the Highland Shores subdivision and lift station 7 is located on Fairfield Lane in the Castlewood subdivision. The project consists of excavating a trench and installing a new pipe to carry wastewater form the lift station to the gravity sewer collections system. The City has secured an engineering firm for the design of the project. The construction phase is anticipated to be winter 2023/spring 2024.
Lake Vista Water Well Upgrade Project – The City identified the Lake Vista water well to be upgraded from a .3MGD flow to a 1.0MGD flow. The existing water well was constructed in the 1960’s and has reached its end of life. The project consists of drilling a new well on an adjacent property owned by the City. The City has secured the engineering firms required to design this project and is currently in the design and permitting phase. It is anticipated to be constructed in late 2023/early 2024.
Dredging the Quail Cove and Wal-Mart Detention/Retention Facilities Project – The City identified 2 detention/retention facilities in need of dredging, one located on Quail Cove in the Rolling Hills subdivision and one located north of the Wal-Mart building on City property. The project consists of surveying the sites and comparing the survey data to the original record drawings, designing a dredging project to bring the 2 sites back to their design capacities. The City secured an engineering firm to design the project. It is anticipate to move into the construction phase summer 2023.
Unity Park Pond Bank Stabilization Project – The City identified the need to stabilize the bank of the existing northern pond located in the Unity Park. The project consists of adding gabion baskets along the entire perimeter of the existing pond to eliminate the erosion currently taking place.
