Capital Improvement Program

Adopted | Fiscal Year 23-25


The City of Oakland is committed to the delivery of effective, courteous and responsible service. Citizens and employees are treated with fairness, dignity and respect.

Civic and employee pride are accomplished through constant pursuit of excellence and a workforce that values and reflects the diversity of the Oakland community.

“OakDOT is proud and grateful to continue putting equity principles to work in this CIP cycle. Our team and partners have worked tirelessly to engage with Oakland’s most underrepresented communities to surface and include their needs. In areas that have historically faced a lack of investment, we continue to champion the City’s equity-driven paving program with the support and resources provided by Oakland voters through Measure KK and Measure U. Investing equitably is an essential strategy in building a safe, healthy Oakland for all residents.”

- Fred Kelley, Oakland Department of Transportation Director

“Oakland Public Works is delighted to collaborate with City Departments, stakeholders, and communities in the creation and implementation of the City's CIP projects. We are dedicated to improving this program continually, with a strong emphasis on equity and safety. We extend our appreciation to all the stakeholders who have played a crucial role in making these projects possible.”

- G. Harold Duffey, Oakland Public Works (OPW) Director


The City of Oakland’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP) guides the City’s decisions regarding the construction, repair and replacement of the City’s assets including libraries, public safety facilities, sewers, recreation centers and parks. Transportation and street improvements are also part of the City’s CIP. The City develops a new CIP Budget every two years for inclusion in the overall City Budget, and the assets identified for repair, replacement or purchase in a budget cycle become CIP Projects.

The FY 23-25 CIP Budget, which includes $329M in investments, seeks to balance the need to repair and replace existing assets with delivering new assets where they are most needed. It represents a major investment in infrastructure and assets that reflects the overall priorities of the City and has an enormous impact on the health and vibrancy of our community. The CIP links long-range strategic plans and goals with current resources and needs. Capital projects included in a CIP are defined as any long-term investment that builds, replaces or improves an asset, such as buildings, roads, parks, traffic signals, sewers and drainage lines. CIP projects typically have a useful design life of at least ten years and a minimum cost of approximately $100,000.
