The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is designed to allow the Town to do projects that are beyond the scope of routine maintenance and operation. These projects have a significant impact on the community and not funded in a single-year budget. These projects allow the Town to plan for the future, by allowing time to see how capital projects will relate to other projects.
The Public Works Department is responsible for implementing and managing Capital Improvements Projects. Capital Improvement Projects are a result of efforts of Town's citizens, Town Council, Staff, and Planning Commission to identify and recommend major construction projects for the Town. Many of the projects have come from previous engineering and staff reports and some come from citizen or councilperson complaints. These projects are addressed in a manner that fulfills the goals of the Town's Comprehensive Plan.
The CIP is reviewed annually at which time the schedule and the projects are reevaluated, new or deferred projects are added, and the timeframe is extended if necessary.
