Capital Improvement Plan

What is the Capital Improvement Plan?
The Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) is Tigard's 6-year plan for matching the cost of large-scale improvements—like fixing roads, water and sewer systems—to anticipated revenues, like taxes and bonds.

What Makes a Project CIP Eligible?
The city defines a CIP project as:
  1. Any public facility project that improves or adds value to Tigard's infrastructure
  2. Costs $50,000 or more
  3. Has a useful life or extends the useful life of a facility for five years or more 

What's Next? Not all capital projects are funded due to limited budgets. Instead, the city allocates money to projects that are considered high priority or have available grant funding. Typically, the further out projects are scheduled beyond the current year, the less likely that immediate funding will be available for construction.

The FY 19-20 CIP includes the following projects:

  • Dirksen Nature Park – Restroom, Shelter and Nature Play
  • Planning, design and improvements of multiple sections of the Fanno Creek Regional Trail
  • North Dakota Street Bridge replacement
  • Tigard Street Heritage Trail improvements
  • Derry Dell Creek restoration project
  • Construct sidewalks along sections of Commercial Street and Pacific Highway
