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 for the upcoming 2015-2019 Capital Improvement Program (CIP).
