Capital Improvement Program Advisory Committee


The Capital Improvements Projects Citizen Advisory Committee (CIPCAC) was established by Resolution 2014-72 to advise the city on matters relating to the implementation of 2013 voter-approved Ballot Issue 2K. Following the completion of the 2K projects at the end of 2018, the CIPCAC committee was re-established to continue advising the city regarding all capital improvement projects going forward.


To receive staff reports on the progress of each approved CIP project in relationship to established schedules, budget allocations, project goals, and quality management guidelines.

  • Accountability – Demonstrating effective stewardship of taxpayer dollars
  • Engagement – Provide tangible opportunities for community members to engage
  • Potential – Leverage civic support and progress beyond the initial five projects

To review and provide comment on public engagement and public information plans.

To promote public awareness and understanding of the CIP projects and the implementation of each.
