Capital Improvement Program

The County’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is a six-year plan for the construction and maintenance of the County’s water, sewer and storm drain improvements, roads, bridges, refuse disposal facilities, government buildings, parks, schools, land preservation, community improvements, and watershed restoration.

The Department of Planning manages the role of the Planning Board in the development of the County’s CIP. The CIP is a major means tool for implementing the goals and priorities of the County’s Master Plan. The CIP is reviewed annually. The Planning Board’s involvement begins in October with the scheduling of a citizen input meeting and concludes the following March when the board forwards its recommendations to the Office of Budget and Finance.

Having the citizen input meeting at the beginning of the process allows each agency to consider citizen requests before they formulate their recommendations for the CIP.
