Facilities & Infrastructure Policy
Plano will strategically plan and implement improvements to city facilities, assets, and infrastructure to ensure the necessary needs and services are provided to the community.
Maintain an asset management system to inventory the location, condition, and anticipated lifespan of city facilities, assets, and infrastructure.
Utilize data and insights from the city’s asset management system to:
Maintain the Community Investment Program (CIP) as a five-year guide to planning, building, operating and maintaining capital projects. Adopt the first year of the CIP as part of the City’s annual operating budget.
Review the 5-year Community Investment Program (CIP) annually with the Planning & Zoning Commission to ensure projects and programs are aligned with the Comprehensive Plan and other adopted master plans. Priority should be given to projects which:
In preparing the CIP, project selection should consider asset conditions, equitable distribution, environmental impacts, resiliency and sustainability, long-term health and safety benefits, and cost effectiveness.
Design municipal buildings that are functional, distinctive, and appropriate for their surroundings.
When upgrading, expanding, or building new public facilities, utilize signage, landscaping, and related amenities to improve their visual appeal.
