Five-Year Budget & Program Summary

General Fund - Capital Improvement Program

The Capital Improvements Program (CIP) will reflect a consensus of the perceived needs and desires of the community based on current surveys and long-range planning. Projects included in the Capital Improvements Program shall be consistent with the City of Kalamazoo Strategic Vision. The CIP provides funding for those operations exclusive of enterprise funds. Eligible uses include capital projects, major equipment, debt service, and non-utility environmental expenses.
