Capital Improvement

Fiscal Year 2020-21

FY 2020-21 Capital Improvement Plan Overview


The 2019-2024 5-Year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) was adopted on March 13, 2019. The summary below reflects that portion that was planned for FY 2020-21. This plan was adopted on March 18, 2020 as part of the FY 2020-21 Rollover Budget to prepare the Town to shift gear to address the impacts of COVID 19 spread into the San Mateo County.

On May 13, 2020, the Town studied the financial impact of COVID-19 and the capital plan from that study and subsequent studies will be presented as part of the Quarterly Projection on the Town’s website:

A full list of projects is available on page 33 and the adopted 5-Year Capital Plan is available on the Town’s Website under the Finance page:

CIP Project Categories

Colma’s Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) lists projects in four distinct categories:

  1. Streets, Sidewalks, Bikeways
  2. Sewers & Storm Drains
  3. City Facilities & Long-Range Plans
  4. Major Equipment, Technology & Fleet

Project Status

The project status is shown on each capital project. The statuses are Active, Closed or Unfunded.

  • Active - existing or new CIP projects that have available funding and activities (spending) in FY 2020-21.
  • Closed - CIP projects that have been completed or have been closed out. These projects will only appear in future CIP budgets if they have project expenditures during the prior three years.
  • Unfunded - CIP projects that are Town priorities but are currently without budgeted funds. Unfunded projects will be reviewed annually during the Town Budget process to see if funds are available for construction and if the proposed projects are ready to move from the Unfunded to the Budgeted projects list.

This will provide more clarity in the Capital Improvement Budget. It will also identify projects that are budgeted, projects that are ready to be closed (and dropped from future CIP budgets) and future projects that are currently unfunded today but are in the developmental stage awaiting conceptual design approval, plans and specifications and additional funding from the Town and/or outside sources.
