Capital Improvement Program
Purpose of the Plan
A Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) outlines the Town’s plan for achieving the goals and objectives desired by the Mayor and Town Council. The purpose of this plan is to forecast and match projected revenues and major capital needs over a specific period of time. Capital planning is an important management tool that strengthens the linkages between community infrastructure needs and the financial capacity of the Town.
What types of projects are included in the CIP?
The Town decides the cost threshold and types of projects to include in the CIP. Currently projects with a cost greater than $100,000 and a useful life of at least two years (excluding vehicles and other rolling stock) are considered candidates for the CIP. This includes:
- Repair and replacement of existing infrastructure
- Streets / sidewalks / paths
- Electric utility undergrounding
How are the projects determined?
The projects are determined and ranked in four steps. These steps include:
- Identify needs / projects
- Determine project costs
- Prioritize projects
- Develop financing strategies.
