In FY 2021, due to the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the County adopted a one-year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) instead of the traditional 10-year plan. For FY 2022, the County will build on the Adopted FY 2021 CIP and present a three-year CIP to the County Board. The CIP may include potential bond referenda for large infrastructure projects to be considered by voters in November 2021. The CIP process and timeline can be found here.
