Capital Improvement Program

What is a Capital Improvement Program? 

The City of Bellaire Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is a process by which the city develops a multi-year plan for major capital expenditures.   This plan is created from  goals and objectives outlined in the Comprehensive Plan, City Council Priorities, Department Level Service Plans as well as operational needs.  These major, non-routine expenditures for new construction and improvements are categorized as:

  • Streets and Drainage
  • Water and Wastewater
  • Parks
  • Facilities

The Development Services Department manages the development of the annual five-year CIP. Only projects for the current fiscal year are considered part of the adopted budget. Adopting the CIP does not appropriate funds for future years but are shown in future years as guidance for planning expenditures each year.  

For more information on the current budget for the CIP, refer to page 144 of the FY 2019 Budget.
