About the CIP

The CIP is a five-year outlook for anticipated capital projects and is reviewed and updated annually by the City. These projects are primarily related to improvements in transportation, parks, utilities and facilities. The CIP represents a long-term financial plan, which establishes priorities, identifies project costs and phasing, identifies funding sources, and serves as a planning document for capital improvements. The projects and their timing are reviewed annually by City Council, and adopted by Ordinance. As a planning document, the CIP is a fluid document being revisited many times during the course of the year by City Council, and the City’s Administration. Annual revisions to the CIP are based on many considerations, including adjustments in funding sources, construction timing and the changing needs and priorities of the City.

In developing the Five-Year CIP, several elements are taken into consideration:

  • City Council goals
  • Community surveys
  • Economic development opportunities 
  • Current economic climate
  • Grant funding opportunities
  • Commitments made by the City of Dublin
  • Maintenance and rehabilitation of existing City facilities and infrastructure
  • Technology improvements
  • Enhancements within the community
