Capital Improvement Plan

The City of St. Helena’s five-year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) is a multi-year planning instrument to guide the construction of new facilities/infrastructure; and for the expansion, rehabilitation or replacement of existing City-owned assets. The five-year CIP is developed by City Staff and adopted City Council, then becomes the guiding document for the prioritization of projects.

The information included in the CIP is based on the current information available and updated regularly to reflect changing priorities, funding availability and project completion. A new five-year CIP will be submitted to City Council annually with recommended adjustments to project budgets, funding sources, descriptions, and/or schedules. Inclusion of a project in the CIP does not commit the City to specific expenditures or appropriations for any particular project.

The CIP includes all projects and programs expected to be undertaken during the next five fiscal years. Specific projects and related schedules are selected based upon:

  • Implementation of the City’s General Plan
  • Availability of funding
  • Minimizing disruptions associated with construction activity
  • City Council direction
