• City of Houston Capital Improvement Plan

    The Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) is a forward looking document outlining the City of Houston’s infrastructure improvement strategy. This plan organizes projects by priority, project capacity and timing constraints and identifies funding sources for all anticipated projects. This organization creates a realistic plan to address the current and expected infrastructure needs of Houston that are subject to resource constraints.

    The Capital Improvement Plan is vital to our City. It is a plan for physical improvements to public facilities and infrastructure throughout Houston. The underlying motive behind these programs is to improve safety, mobility, and lifestyles of Houstonians, and in turn to have a positive impact on the local economy. Recognition of this importance prompted City Council in November 1983 to establish the five-year capital improvement planning process. By resolution, it became City policy to engage in a continuous process that includes annual review, revision, and adoption of a five year Capital Improvement Plan. Public meetings are also held annually in each City Council District to provide citizens an opportunity to comment on the process and recommend projects to be included in the plan.

    The five-year CIP is revised annually to include new projects, reflect changes in priorities, and extend the plan an additional year. The first year of the plan is the City’s current fiscal year - which starts on July 1. The plan is adjusted throughout the year as needs dictate or when changes are made to existing approved projects. This year's CIP continues the Administration's priorities of rehabilitation and replacement of the City's existing infrastructure.
