CIP Committee Seeks Resident Proposals

Deadline: Mon., March 6th

The Capital Improvement Projects Review Committee (CIP) is soliciting proposals for new city projects which would enhance our community. Ideas submitted by individuals, community organizations and City staff are all considered. If you have a great idea, the committee would like to hear from you.

Download the Proposal Form. Proposals are due no later than March 6th at 5:00PM.

All applicants/residents that have submitted proposals will be personally invited to attend the CIP Meeting to be scheduled in March. At this meeting, applicants will be asked to briefly describe their projects to the CIP Committee. The CIP Review Committee will then determine which projects will require a site visit.

The CIP Site Visit Tour will be scheduled for a Saturday in early May. The tour will commence at City Hall at 9:00AM and then will proceed to CIP tour stops located throughout the City. At each of the tour stops the CIP Committee will see the locations for proposed projects first hand.

At noon a working lunch will be provided at City Hall for Committee members, city staff, and interested citizens. At this working lunch the CIP Review Committee will attempt to compose their list of 2017-2018 CIP projects that they recommend as a part of this year’s budget process. The CIP chair in conjunction with CIP Review Committee members will be asked to prepare a list of recommended projects and narrative that will be forwarded to the City Council for consideration in the budget process.

Completed forms should be returned to the Department of Public Works, 120 Vista Avenue, Piedmont.  If you have questions regarding the CIP process, please contact Nancy Kent, Parks & Project Manager, at (510) 420-3064.
