The Capital Projects Division is responsible for capital improvements and major maintenance of all 21 County buildings. Additionally, we implement the design and construction of accessibility improvements at County facilities as part of the annual Capital Improvement Program, and for other County departments with large capital projects.

Capital Improvement Program

The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is a multi-year planning tool to identify and implement the County's short-term and long-term capital needs. The CIP includes acquisitions, additions, improvements, and non-routine maintenance to County-owned facilities and roads that generally equal or exceed $25,000 and have a useful life of at least five years. Capital projects are categorized in one of four service categories: improvements to the County Airport, improvements to County General Fund facilities, flood control/fish passage projects, and maintenance to County roads. CIPs from FY 2006-07 to present are available for download from the list below.
