Capital Improvement Program

What is the Capital Improvement Program (CIP)?


The CIP is the city's long-range plan for improvements to infrastructure, parks and other community facilities. The CIP is a tool to assess the long-term capital needs, values and desires of the city and to establish funding of high-priority projects in a timely, cost-effective manner.

CIP Goals


The following are goals of the CIP:
  • Provide a planned replacement of deteriorating infrastructure
  • Repair deteriorated infrastructure
  • Improve operational or functional aspects of existing infrastructure
  • Add new facilities and improve the community’s infrastructure to enhance the quality of life in Creve Coeur
  • Provide for planned replacement of major equipment required for City operations

5-Year CIP Process (FY 2019-2023)


Each CIP covers a five-year period and is updated annually beginning in November through late March/early April. Public input is an integral part of the planning process for each CIP. The City is currently accepting public input and prioritizing projects in preparation for the CIP for FY 2019-2023.

If you would like the city to consider a project, please submit your ideas by January 8, 2018, toSharon Stott, Assistant City Administrator, c/o CIP Ideas, City of Creve Coeur, 300 N. New Ballas Rd., Creve Coeur, MO 63141.

Once staff prepares the draft CIP, the Planning and Zoning Commission and Finance Committee review the plan and forward recommendations to the City Council. The City Council reviews the plan, holds a public hearing and ultimately decides the CIP's adoption.
