The Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) is meant to reflect a comprehensive picture of the needs and activities throughout San Angelo's municipal government. The CIP is a planning tool and does not function as a funding source.
In 2007, the City of San Angelo prepared and adopted the first five-year CIP to better reflect a comprehensive picture of the needs and activities throughout the organization. Eligible projects must have a useful life of at least three years, cost more than $25,000 and require six months or more to complete. Street, water, drainage and park projects are included in the CIP.
The city charter requires a five-year CIP be published and available to citizens – which it is in hard copy form at City Hall, 72 W. College Ave., or via the links below. The charter further mandates that public input be sought to ensure it addresses citizens’ needs and wishes. Citizens can share their thoughts via a short online form, during an online forum, and at a town hall gathering.
The online forum begins at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 7, on the City of San Angelo-Public Information Facebook page. The live video program will feature City officials speaking briefly about the plan and the projects within it, responding to questions and fielding comments.
The town hall gathering will be at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 12, at the McNease Convention Center, 501 Rio Concho Drive. City officials will again be on hand to hear the public’s input and answer questions. The meeting will be broadcast live on the City’s Facebook page and on SATV, Suddenlink channel 17. It will be rebroadcast daily on SATV.
The CIP is used to help shape the budget for fiscal year 2020, which will begin on Oct. 1, 2019. CIP projects have a wide range of funding sources, including grants, designated revenue, financing, unspent money from prior budgets, and sales and property taxes.
