Capital Improvement Plan

The Biennial Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) identifies and prioritizes capital improvement projects for funding. These projects generally tend to be special, one-time “events” designed to address a significant community need or problem. Generally, projects over $5,000 are included in the CIP.

2016-2018 CIP

Examples of CIP projects include (but are not limited to):

• street and park construction and rehabilitation projects,
• construction and/or repairs to city facilities,
• major acquisitions such as new computer systems and other equipment that are not
part of a department’s operating budget,
• feasibility studies to identify or quantify future projects, and
• some major equipment replacement purchases.

However, some special types of projects are not included in the CIP, despite costing more than $5,000. These projects include (but are not limited to):

• equipment replaced through the Equipment Replacement fund (radio replacement and routine
vehicle replacement),
• ongoing operating programs that maintain the current level of service, and
• leasing of property or vehicles.
