Capital Improvement Plan 2008 -2012 Public Input Session #1 June 2, 2008


Purpose of the hearing To initiate public discussion as a kick-off for the next five year CIP plan covering the years 2009 through 2013 Educational forum – highlighting the City’s capital needs in light of the City’s and community’s ability to pay for the needed / desired improvements


Council Subcommittee on the CIP History – Council subcommittee format - experiment initiated by the Mayor in early 2007 Capital improvement planning selected as focal point for the group


Why capital planning? Previous CIP documents were little more than wish lists – without consideration of the City’s ability to finance; City’s history of deferring major projects, maintenance on facilities and streets contrasted with decision to proceed with a single major project without consideration of other needs (pool);


Why capital planning? At this time the City is faced with a number of major facility upgrades / replacements – City Hall, Safety Center and Library; Annual street improvement program inconsistent – abandoned in early 2000’s when State Aid / budget cuts occurred;


Why capital planning? Given the needs – Council knew it was imperative that a process and schedule to plan for capital improvements be developed; City has completed or in the process of conducting major studies on utility systems, streets, facilities and parks that will help guide projects in the future.


The work of the Council Subcommittee on the CIP Development of a draft CIP policy –  Establishes annual schedule for the development and review of the five-year plan;  Eliminates decisions being made in isolation as was done with the pool;  Provides a framework in which to assemble, evaluate and rank all projects – in terms of project priority and project financing.


The work of the Council Subcommittee on the CIP New format for the CIP document to provide the community sufficient details on projects / financing with appropriate context – basis of need / studies / long-range plans. Research on alternative revenue sources to help finance capital projects – franchise fee / local option sales tax.


The work of the Council Subcommittee on the CIP The subcommittee and the full Council need public input at this point and going forward 



To assess the community’s support of projects and their timing; To help determine what level of debt the community will support
