In May 2017, the Board of Aldermen approved the Brentwood Bound projects to revitalize the Manchester Road corridor in Brentwood. The Brentwood Bound Plan is a comprehensive solution to overcome flooding and public safety challenges presented by the Deer Creek channel and to improve the Manchester Road corridor within the City of Brentwood. Brentwood Bound includes three projects: Deer Creek Flood Mitigation, Manchester Road Improvements and Deer Creek Greenway Connector. The goal of these projects is to ensure and enhance the City of Brentwood’s vibrancy for many years to come.
The Brentwood Bound Plan is funded through a combination of grant funding, partnerships, funding from certificates of participation and a one-half of one percent economic development sales tax.
Brentwood voters approved Proposition B, an economic development sales tax, in April 2019 by a 3-to-1 margin. The Board of Aldermen approved the collection of this tax, which began on January 1, 2020. On Nov. 18, 2019, The Brentwood Board of Aldermen authorized the sale of 2019 Series Certificates of Participation in the amount of $40.4 million. This amount, supported by an economic development sales tax, combines with $39.2 million in existing funding to cover the total anticipated cost of $79.6 million.
