The Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) describes the capital improvements and expenditures being planned in the City of St. Louis Park over the next 10 years. It is a statement of the city's policies and financial ability to manage the physical development of the community.
Engineering oversees the CIP for construction and maintenance of public infrastructure, including roads, bridges, sanitary sewer, storm sewer, watermain, sidewalks, and bikeways. The CIP is reviewed and revised annually. To plan for the future and coordinate work with other government jurisdictions, the city identifies the years when improvements will be done and funding sources. A proposed CIP is presented to the city council as part of the annual budget development process. A final CIP for the following year is presented to the council and is adopted along with the annual budget in December.
Here is a map of projects adopted for the coming year and planned for in the next 4 years.
The first year reflects the adopted projects for the upcoming year. The remaining four years represent a schedule and estimate of future capital projects that may be funded, given projected revenue estimates.
The CIP includes public infrastructure projects that range from replacing watermain, repairing sewer pipes, reconstructing road, building sidewalk and installing bikeways. Several of these projects are highlighted on the construction projects page.
