- A Community Re-investment Plan
The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is a five-year program that identifies needs for construction of capital projects or improvements for the City’s infrastructure. It identifies estimated costs and funding sources to demonstrate a balanced funding and expenditure program.
The CIP is updated annually. Each update is created with input from the public, advice from the Planning Commission and direction from the City Council. It is reviewed at a public hearing early each spring and adopted by the City Council. The adopted CIP then becomes the basis for the annual capital budget.
Public input is an important first step in creating the annual update. Do you have a suggestion of a project or improvement to your neighborhood? If so, please fill out a suggestion form and submit it to City of Springfield Public Works. Project ideas for the current update, 2012 - 2016 fiscal years, were received in December and January and have been incorporated where appropriate in the current CIP. The following link has the suggestion sheet. Project ideas may be submitted any time for incorporation in future Capital Improvement Projects.
