Capital Improvement Program

2017-21 CIP
The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is a plan recommended by the City Manager and adopted by City Council for capital expenditures to be incurred over a multi-year period in order to meet the long-term capital improvement needs of the city.

Debt issuance and management is closely tied to capital spending and therefore debt levels as well as future planned issuances of debt are also detailed throughout the report.

The most recent CIP was adopted by City Council on May 9, 2016. It includes a projected planned spending of $48.7 million in FY 2017 and $103 million between FY 2018 and FY 2021. The planned bond issuance for FY 2017 (likely to be done in February 2017) will not exceed $26.515 million.

  2. About the Document
Beginning in January departments are asked to provide information on new, potential projects and give updates on existing and ongoing projects. These requests are reviewed and discussed with all stakeholders involved including the Budget Committee. Things taken into consideration are needs of the community, potential timelines, scope of the project, availability of staff to manage the projects, debt limit requirements and City's Council's priorities as they may be understood at the time.

Projects that are to be funded within the next five years are included in the report. Projects may be funded with bonds, grants, contingency funds, or general fund revenues. Funding sources are determined specifically for each project depending on it's best opportunities available and suited needs.
