The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is an implementation plan for the construction, maintenance, and renovation of public facilities and infrastructure over the next 5 years. All projects listed in the CIP must have some identified funding with the following characteristics:
- Any project, facility or equipment with a monetary value of at least $25,000 and will last longer than 5 years.
- Any project, facility or equipment, which meets the above criterion and will benefit from extended life through renovation, replacement, refurbishment or expansion.
- Any project, facility or equipment that is currently funded in an existing capital improvement or bond program that will not be completed by June 30, 2013
The Community Work Program (CWP) is a 15-year program that includes unfunded and funded programs, non-capital and capital projects to implement the vision and policies of the Comprehensive Development Plan over the next 15 years. Projects listed in adopted plans since 2004 are included in the CWP. NPU project lists are also included in the CWP. A project must be in the CWP before it can be moved into the CIP Project List.
The CIP/CWP must be reviewed by the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) and the Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA) and adopted by the City of Atlanta by October 31st of each year in order to maintain Qualified Local Government status, which is needed for various State and regional funding and in order to collect local impact fees.
The Department of Planning and Community Development’s Office of Planning is responsible for preparing and reviewing the CIP/CWP document for conformity with DCA’s guidelines. The Office has established a Sub-Cabinet comprised of representatives from each City operating department and other designated agencies who are responsible for developing project lists for both the CIP and CWP based on identified and projected needs. The management and implementation of projects in each specific chapter are the operating department and agency’s responsibility.
