Capital Improvements Plan
Purpose of the Capital Improvements Plan
The Capital Improvements Plan (CIP) outlines a schedule of public service expenditures over the ensuing six-year period and beyond. The CIP does not address all of the capital expenditures for the City, but provides for large, physical improvements that are permanent in nature, including the basic facilities, services, and installations needed for the functioning of the community. These include transportation systems, utilities, municipal facilities and other miscellaneous projects.
Preparation of the CIP is done under the authority of the Michigan Planning Enabling Act (PA 33 of 2008), as amended. It is the City Planning Commission's goal that the CIP be used as a tool to implement the City's Master Plan and assist in the City's financial planning.
