Capital Improvement Projects
Capital Improvement Projects
The Capital Improvements Program (CIP) is a listing of priority projects that are intended to meet City Council's goal of upgraded city infrastructure and facilities. Upgrades come in the form of new facilities or infrastructure, or maintaining the current investment for the benefit of Northglenn residents. CIP projects help to maintain streets, parks, buildings, sanitary wastewater system, water distribution systems, water and wastewater treatment facilities, traffic control devices, stormwater tributaries and other assets.
In order to be included in the CIP, a project must meet the following requirements:
• Total costs of the project are expected to meet or exceed $5,000.
• The resulting project will have a useful life of more than one year.
• The project will result in the creation of a new asset or the extension of an existing asset’s useful life, value, and/or operational capacity.
