Capital Improvement Projects (CIP)

The Capital Improvement Division (CIP) administers the City's Five-Year Capital Improvement Program, which consists of projects for the construction of City facilities, roads, traffic signals, parks, and community centers.  The primary sources of funding for the CIP are Developer Impact Fees (DIF), Measure A, General Fund, and grants from various sources, including local, state, and federal agencies.

The CIP Division is responsible for the project planning, environmental documentation, design, and property acquisition, for streets, bridges, facilities, and park projects.  The Division also manages the bidding process for Capital Improvement Projects, as well as construction inspection duties.  All functions are done in coordination with various agencies, including utility companies, other departments with the City, Caltrans, and other governmental agencies.
