The CIP allows the City to identify and implement Council priorities to meet their strategic goals and enhance livabiliy. It also ensures upgrades, repairs, and replacement of aging infrastructure that citizens every day-like streets, sidewalks, community centers, parks and more!
Each project proposal is reviewed from a variety of approaches before it is included in the CIP. Projects included in the CIP are identified by department staff based upon:
Input from the community received during the year;
Input from the Council on needs that develop or are identified during the year; and
Staff-identified projects based on critical needs, including those due to safety issues or to comply with new mandates.
All CIP projects are reviewed first by the appropriate operating departments/programs. Projects are prioritized and presented for funding based upon the level of funding estimated to be available for the coming fiscal year and subsequent fiscal years.
Under the direction of the City Manager, the Public Works Department and the Department of Finance review the proposed projects and prepare the CIP for submittal to the Council. The proposed CIP is then presented, discussed, and acted upon by the City Council in public sessions during the budget hearings. Members of the community can comment on the proposed CIP and provide input to the Council during the hearing process. The Council can provide staff with changes to the proposed CIP and then adopt the final CIP and Operating Budget in June.
A Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is a long-range plan that:
Identifies capital projects and equipment purchases
Provides an implementation schedule
Identifies options for capital project financing
Identifies Councils strategic initiative
Links capital projects to budgets
The CIP contains a complete list of the capital projects and equipment to be purchased, project financing, project time tables, project information and justification, and expenditure requirements for each project.
The CIP serves as the basis for planning the Capital Improvement Projects Budget over the next 5 fiscal years. The CIP is updated annually.
Capital Improvement projects are funded from various sources. Funding details for each specific project can be found in the City's annual budget, located on the Finance page, and the project information sheets linked below.
CIP project funding sources include:
Regional Surface Transportation Program (RSTP)
Buildings and Grounds Fund
Reiko Koo Fund
Bertha Strong Trust
Civic Center Fund
Point Pinos Lighthouse Fund
Annually, City Staff updates the CIP project list. Projects are prioritized and presented for funding based upon the level of available funding estimated for the coming fiscal year and subsequent fiscal years. Once the CIP project list is reviewed and approved by City Council, it is becomes a component of the City's Annual Budget.
In addition to the operating budget, the CIP budget is one of the primary components of the annual budget.
