FY2023-24 Community Investment Program

Engineering 2PWFacilities

The Community Investment Program (CIP) is a five-year guide to planning, building, operating, and maintaining capital projects.  The program includes a schedule of proposed municipal expenditures for new facilities and/or the renovation, reconstruction, or expansion of existing facilities and infrastructure.  Projects budgeted in the CIP are major capital investments to municipal buildings, streets, parks, drainage ways, and utilities.  

Projects are scheduled on an annual basis for a five-year period and funded from multiple sources, including the general fund, capital reserve fund, bonds, and other agencies. The first fiscal year of the plan is adopted annually as part of the city’s annual budget.  The remaining years within the CIP represent the framework for future planning and will be subject to annual review and modification across the following years.  Many CIP projects are multi-year in nature, with their design and construction frequently taking place over several fiscal years.  

The Planning & Zoning Commission (P&Z) is tasked with reviewing the CIP each year to ensure proposed projects align with the city’s Comprehensive Plan.  Strong linkage between the Comprehensive Plan and the CIP is critical to ensure city resources are effectively allocated to achieve the long-term vision and goals of the city.  While the CIP is ultimately a funding plan, the role of the Commission in this process is to review the relationship between the CIP and the Comprehensive Plan.  For the 2023-24 fiscal year, the P&Z found the CIP to be in alignment with the Comprehensive Plan at its meeting on August 7, 2023.

  4. Facilities


As part of the Commission’s CIP review and recommendation to the City Council, proposed CIP projects are reviewed in accordance with the Comprehensive Plan based on the following criteria:

PRoject Overview

 Project Type

Each CIP project is classified by Project Type, including:

  • Maintenance, repair, or minor replacement,
  • Major replacement or reconstruction,
  • New improvement or addition, and 
  • Policy or study.

Many projects in the first three categories may also include associated policies or studies to inform the overall project.

 Project Location

Projects are categorized as either “citywide” or “specific location.”  This categorization provides an opportunity to visualize the geographic distribution of projects.

Funding Overview

Lead Department/Divisions  

A comparison of the total funding and number of projects is included to illustrate the distribution of projects across city departments and divisions, including Engineering, Facilities, Parks & Recreation, Public Works, and others. Due to the overlap in scope and responsibilities, the Public Works & Engineering projects are combined into a single category.

 Expenditure Category   

A comparison of funding totals across CIP funding categories is included to illustrate the funding sources for this year’s CIP projects.  These include General Obligation, Short Term Debt, Revenue Bonds, the Park Fee Program, Capital Maintenance Fund, and Water & Sewer Fund.

Plan Alignment

 Facilities & Infrastructure Policy (Action 4)

Action 4 of the Facilities & Infrastructure Policy (FI-4) guides the Commission on how capital projects should be prioritized to meet community needs.   Projects that meet one or more of these priorities are considered in conformance with the Comprehensive Plan.  FI-4 is also informative to represent how the city distributes funding among the various priorities for any given year.


Facilities & Infrastructure Action 4 (FI-4):  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:

  1. Address issues, inadequacies, or needs in the city’s facilities and infrastructure where identified by the city’s asset management system or strategic plans;
  2. Provide preventative maintenance to city facilities, assets, or infrastructure that, if not addressed, would likely result in more costly or extensive repairs or replacement in the future;
  3. Construct aspects of the Thoroughfare Plan Map, Bicycle Transportation Plan Map, and Parks Master Plan Map which are incomplete or not yet built to fully developed standards;
  4. Promote strategic objectives outlined in the Facilities Master Plan, the Parks, Recreation, Trails and Open Space Plan, Public Works Master Plan, Small Area Plans, or other adopted master plans;
  5. Promote an economic development objective as defined by the Comprehensive Plan, Economic Development Plan, or other adopted master plan;
  6. Implement technology improvements and innovative solutions to support city facilities and operations.
  7. Coordinate with private reinvestment in preferred growth and redevelopment locations.


The 2023-2024 CIP includes over 400 projects that meet one or more priorities listed in the Facilities and Infrastructure Policy.   Approximately 40% of the 2023-24 CIP project funding is addresses maintenance, repair, or minor replacement projects, with an additional 46% allocated towards reconstruction or major replacement projects, 11% of funding related to new improvement or addition projects, and 3% allocated to infrastructure planning, policies, or studies.  General Obligation bonds fund approximately 54% of the funding for the projects, with 22% funded by Capital Maintenance funds, and 13% funded by Water & Sewer Funds.  Approximately 60% of the 2023-24 CIP project funding is allocated to Engineering and Public Works projects, 25% to Parks & Recreation projects, 12% to Facilities projects, and 3% to other department or non-departmental projects.
