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.
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
For more information, read the CIP Executive Summary.
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. City staff gather information, ascertain public input and prioritize projects in preparation for each CIP.
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.
