Capital Improvement Program


Each year, the City adopts a new 5-year Capital Improvements Program (CIP) plan to identify major construction projects or improvements needed in Abilene. You can help the Community by sharing your ideas and suggestions. Do you know of a street that needs repair? Does your park need new equipment or improvements? Is there a piece of equipment that the City needs but it doesn’t have? The City would like your ideas and suggestions.

Projects included in the Capital Improvement Program typically include:

  • Construction of buildings, or facilities; including design, engineering, and other preconstruction costs with an estimated total cost in excess of $25,000
  • Purchase of major equipment and vehicles, other than office and data processing equipment, valued in excess of $25,000 with a life expectancy of 15 years or more
  • Major equipment and furnishings for the utilization of new or renovated buildings
  • Major acquisition of land or other property
  • Studies pretaining to capital improvements that require the employment of outside professional consultants at a cost in excess of $25,000
