Proposed FY 2015 – FY 2024 CIP

Arlington County Government is developing its 10-year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). The Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) is one of the most significant planning processes for Arlington County and Arlington Public Schools. This plan identifies the capital needs of the community over a specified period of time. This plan not only identifies the immediate needs but also seeks to capture long-term capital needs.

The CIP is a planning document that is updated biennially and subject to change as the needs of the community become more defined and individual projects move along in their planning and budgeting processes. The effective use of a CIP process provides for considerable advance project identification, planning, evaluation, scope definition, design, public discussion, cost estimating and financial planning.

The CIP typically includes major investments in parks, libraries, transportation, community centers, facilities, technology, water, sewer and stormwater infrastructure – along with other areas that support the community. Continued reinvestment in existing assets combined with strategic investments in new assets is essential to the County’s future success.

The current Adopted FY 2013 – FY 2022 CIP was approved in July 2012 — see below. (Note: The County Government’s CIP is separate from the Arlington Public Schools’ CIP, which is prepared by APS.)
