How is the CIP prepared?

In the video below, Assistant City Manager provides a guided tour of the Capital Improvements Program, including how the program works, what projects qualify for CIP inclusion, and how public participation is a driving factor.

The CIP prioritizes all capital spending of $25,000 or more for items with a useful life of three years or longer. Based on City Council financing policy, funding for these items includes bonding, the annual operating budget or other types of financing. This six-year program links infrastructure spending to the goals and values outlined in the City’s Master Plan. Through this process, we identify projects within the six-year timeline, based on the priorities established in our Master Plan.

Once adopted, the first year of the adopted CIP is built into the proposed citywide operating budget, which is presented to the City Council in March.

Many of the items included in the CIP are annual, ongoing capital projects, such as improvements to streets and sidewalks, wastewater and water system maintenance and improvements, police cruisers, facility maintenance and more.
