Asset Management

Asset management plans are long-term forecasts, typically over a ten-year period, that help municipalities make the best possible decisions regarding building, operating, maintaining, renewing, replacing and disposing of infrastructure assets.

The goals of the City of St. Catharines' Asset Management Plan are to:

  • Ensure all City-owned infrastructure assets are sustainable into the future
  • Guide decisions related to infrastructure asset investment and divestment
  • Provide guidance in the development of standard maintenance and rehabilitation policies
  • Provide a framework for lifecycle and cost/benefit analyses
  • Promote better integration of infrastructure decisions within larger strategic, community and land-use goals

The City's Asset Management Plan (2013) describes the state, desired levels of service, management strategies and financing goals for each of the infrastructure categories mandated by the Ontario Ministry of Infrastructure:

  • Bridges
  • Roads
  • Water
  • Sanitary Sewers
