Fort Saskatchewan is aiming high with their 10-year Capital Plan.
 
Although all of the projects would have to be approved by council before being built, the $253.4 million guide could change the look of the city.
 
"There are a number of huge infrastructure projects in there. It's going to be the job of the city administration and council to work together over the next year to really pair that down and define what's important and what the priorities are of the community," said city manager Troy Fleming.
 
The plan presented to council on Monday (Nov.26) included a new $44 million pool, a $14.4 million arena attached to the Dow Centennial Centre and $13.2 million in Jubilee Recreation Centre renovations.
 
"I don't know that you'd see all of those projects come to fruition, but it's something we have to refine," added Fleming.
 
Other major items in the 10-year Capital Plan include:
- $27.8 million local road rehab
- $25.2 million Neighbourhood rehab
- $8 million new fire station
 
The Fort's 10-year Capital Plan is reviewed and adjusted annually.
