The purpose of Capital Improvement Planning is to:
Ensure that these facilities will be in place when development occurs
Provide adequate public facilities to serve existing and new development
Reduce the cost of serving new development with public facilities
The capital improvement plan is a six or more year plan of capital projects with estimated costs and proposed methods of financing that is updated annually.
While the City Council adopts a capital budget each year, the planning and actual expenditure of funds for capital projects generally occur over a period of years. The City’s plans identify the capital improvements needed to serve existing residents and maintain levels of service as new residents and businesses move into the City, and include:
Capital Facilities Plan
General Sewer Plan
Park and Recreation Open Space Plan
Stormwater Management Plan
Transportation Improvement Plan
Water System Plan
The City Council also adopts a set of community improvement goals as a part of the annual budget process.
