Capital Improvement Program
The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is a five year plan that matches the county's major capital needs for long-term physical asset development with the financial ability to meet these needs in a manner that better ensures the effective and efficient provision of government services and operations while maintaining a strong county infrastructure.
The CIP identifies projects that have been designed to support existing or projected needs in the following areas: transportation infrastructure (road and bridges), county facilities, land improvement/development/acquisition, equipment purchases and technology. It is the county’s principal planning tool, and is designed and strategically used to achieve growth and development as envisioned in the county’s Departmental Business Plans.
St. Louis County updates its CIP each year as part of its annual budget process.
The County Board approved the 2016-2020 Capital Improvement Plan and Transportation Improvement Plan on July 5, 2016. The full amended CIP document and CIP Summary, as well as the amended Transportation Improvement Plan are available in the document library below.
