The Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) is the County’s 10-year plan for building, maintaining, upgrading or replacing County facilities and infrastructure. This includes libraries, parks, community centers, technology systems, water, sewer, stormwater and transportation infrastructure—and more. It is prepared on a biennial basis, with any adopted general obligation bond referenda presented to voters in November of even numbered years*.
*In FY 2021, a one-year CIP was adopted due to the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. In FY 2022 a multi-year CIP will be presented to the County Board, with the potential for any adopted bond referenda to be presented to voters in November 2021. The County will return to a full ten-year CIP beginning in FY 2023.
