Every two years, the City prepares a full six-year plan of capital expenditures. The Capital Improvements Plan (CIP) was prepared for the period from July 1, 2009 (FY2010) to June 30, 2015 (FY2015) and beyond. As with past CIP efforts, the City staff and the City’s Planning Commission sought to improve our CIP process.
In this year’s CIP, multi-disciplined CIP Category Teams were formed to work collaboratively in planning the FY2010-2015 CIP. The items performed by these teams include:
- Identification of the capital needs associated with each infrastructure asset category
- Recognition of key items associated with a project to address the needs that are likely to affect the scope, cost and schedule of that project
- Prioritization of the needs within the asset category
- Scheduling of the projects to address the needs within the asset category based on the needs priorities, availability of funding and capacity of staff resources to perform the projects
In addition, a robust prioritization model tool was piloted by the Parks and Recreation, Bridges and Water System Category Teams to see if a more detailed, yet clear prioritization of projects can be achieved compared to the existing Urgent, Important or Desirable prioritizing format.
These modifications, as well as the entire CIP process that is being performed, is detailed further in the plan document links provided in the section below.
