Annual Street Program
2020 Street Program
The City of Xenia has commenced its annual street repaving program after an extremely brutal winter that severely impacted the overall condition of streets and roads throughout Xenia.
Each year, the City of Xenia strives to allocate a minimum $500,000 annually to street repaving and repairs that eliminate potholes and eases debilitating roadway wear and tear due to weather and other extremes. The City typically spends more than that amount each year. Projects for 2020 have not yet been determined, but will be listed as soon as they are finalized.
Annual Street Program
The City of Xenia maintains a rotating Annual Street Program intended to fix and repair City streets. The City established this program following passage of a 0.5% income tax increase in 2010. The program fulfills a promise made to Xenia taxpayers during the tax levy campaign to invest at least $500,000 annually to fix our streets.
The City has exceeded this goal, having spent well in excess of $500,000 per year on street rehabilitation since 2011. Most of the City’s street dollars go to maintenance and resurfacing of neighborhood streets. Remaining local street funds serve as a local match for thoroughfare rehabilitation and safety improvements that are primarily funded by State/Federal grants.
Work Completed Since 2011
- Total local dollars spent to date: $6.8 million
- Lane-miles rehabilitated: 72

Street Selection Criteria
The City considers and weighs all of the following criteria in developing the annual list of streets to be rehabilitated.
- Pavement Condition Index: Periodic, systematic evaluation of the condition of every City street. Streets should have an average index of less than 30. Additionally, City staff compare the PCI score with actual, observed conditions.
- Even coverage: All quadrants of the City should be addressed.
- Underground Infrastructure: Conditions of water and sewer lines are considered as well. If a street must be torn up to fix water or sewer lines, it should be resurfaced at the same time. This economizes on resources by avoiding the need to tear up a street twice.
- Economic Development Impact/Opportunity: Streets enable economic growth. A rehabilitation project will be considered if it facilitates additional growth in jobs and amenities, which can in turn improve local residents’ quality of life and revenues available for City services.
