Review of CIP applications underway

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Review of the Capital Improvement Projects applications began on Monday night at White Rock Fire Station #3, with a good public turnout.


The meeting marked the first in a series that will be held in an effort to review the applications that were received during the CIP cycle, which opened in October 2008.


The CIP process began when Council reviewed and endorsed a new CIP Development Flow Chart for all CIP projects in July 2008.


According to the county website, the flow chart included seven project phases plus a pre-project “Phase 0.”


Council asked staff to develop a new process, which included a major emphasis on community involvement in early project stages, as well as more accurate project definitions and tighter controls on project scopes and budgets throughout the process.


The CIP cycle was opened on Oct. 20, 2008. County Boards and Commissions, individuals, County departments, civic groups, or any combination of sponsors and applicants could submit the proposals.


The schedule was set up so the county could have a CIP budget proposal that could be ready in time for the council’s consideration as part of the overall FY 2010 budget next year.
