The San Diego City Council will vote for a $35 million Capital Improvement program aimed at addressing neighborhood needs.

The program provides funding for fire stations, libraries, street improvements, and storm water projects.

Mayor Bob Filner said city leaders see the bond money as a down payment on the vast infrastructure needs of the city.

Filner said it has been a common theme at neighborhood meetings since his election in November.

"The major question at every event we attended was about infrastructure whether it came up under potholes, whether it came up under hours the rec center will be open, whether it was the way the streets were, whether it was the water mains,” Filner said. “Whatever it was, infrastructure was the key."

As part of the program several libraries will get renovated, including Sky Hills, San Ysidro, Mission Hills, New fire station in Mission Valley.

Final action on the bond measure will take place today at 2 p.m.
