Capital Improvement Budget Process Redesign

CDBG Information for 2020-2021


CIB Process Description

The CIB budget is prepared on a bi-annual basis. Projects are eligible if they finance the acquisition, betterment, physical development, redevelopment and other improvement of City-owned land and buildings, and have a useful life of at least ten years.

On Year Process:

The 2018-2019 CIB Process will be a little different than previous processes.  The City has suspended taking project applications and the task force process as a way to take the time to engage the public and update the community aspect of the CIB Process.  The amount of CIB Bond funds remaining will be used on capital maintenance and street projects will be based off of Public Works' 5-year street plan.  However, the City will be accepting applications for the year allocation of CDBG funding.   In August of 2017, the Mayor presented the Proposed Capital Improvement Plan, and the City Council adopted the capital budgets for 2018 and tentative 2019 in December of 2017. The plan included tentative recommendations for 2020 through 2022.  The 2017 Proposed Capital Budget was released on August 9, 2016.

Off Year Process:

In even-numbered years, the tentative budget for the second year of the biennium generally is recommended by the CIB Committee, proposed by the Mayor and approved by the City Council. Revisions to the tentative budget are allowed for projects that satisfy one of three conditions: 1) elimination of a life/safety hazard; 2) leverage of non-city funding; or 3) coordination with other projects.
