Capital Improvement Plan (CIP)

The CIP is a five-year program that identifies needs for construction of capital projects or improvements to the City’s infrastructure. Each update is created with input from the public and direction from the City Council.

A capital project is a project that costs $25,000 or more and results in a permanent addition to the City’s asset through the acquisition of property, new construction, or rehabilitation of an existing facility to a like-new condition.

Examples of CIP projects are:

  • Street reconstruction
  • Traffic signal installation
  • New fire station
  • Playground replacement at a park

Examples of what is not a CIP project:

  • Street pothole repair or other maintenance
  • Additional police patrol or other services
