What is a capital improvement project?

A capital improvement project is any major improvement to City facilities and/or infrastructure. Capital improvement projects typically include projects such as:

  • Street construction, reconstruction, or rehabilitation
  • Construction or renovation of City facilities, such as fire stations and libraries
  • Park improvements

All of the proposed projects are referred to collectively as a Capital Improvement Program. Although capital improvement projects can be very different, most require multiple years to complete, are financed over a long period of time, and require a series of work phases to complete, such as planning, design, and construction.
