FY22-27 Program - Get Involved

Fiscal Years 2022-2027 Capital Improvement Program (Fiscal Year 2022 Capital Budget)

The process to develop the Capital Improvement Program starts with agencies, so one of the best ways to get involved is to engage directly with agencies.  This can take many forms.  Agencies frequently engage the public in planning processes to identify priorities. Agencies also engage stakeholders through plans focused on particular neighborhoods, such as INSPIRE plans and LINCs plans.  In addition to engaging stakeholders through planning processes, agencies value input from residents about failing infrastructure, whether through 311 or direct outreach.  Residents can also work directly with agency representatives on particular project ideas.

Once agencies have submitted their capital requests there is an extensive process of public hearings related to the development of the capital budget. The Planning Commission, Board of Estimates, and City Council votes all include opportunity for public comment. Stakeholders are encouraged to attend and participate in these hearings. Stakeholders can also communicate support for a particular project or priority by sending a letter to the Planning Commission, care of the Director of Planning.

The process kicks off in the fall each year. See the table below for dates of important events or milestones for the FY22-27 process. This table will be updated with dates, times, and locations as they become available.
