Each year the Engineering Division of the Public Works Department prepares and implements a Capital Improvement Program (CIP). The CIP Section plans for the City’s infrastructure needs over a five year period and budgets for the necessary projects. These projects include street improvements, traffic signals, storm drains, sewers and waste treatment facilities, recycled water, potable water and water treatment facilities and wells, community building facilities and structures, recreational facilities and Redevelopment Agency projects.
The CIP Section plans, designs, estimates, prepares and reviews bid documentation including construction plans and specifications, provides project management and administration and provides inspection and technical assistance as needed on all City related improvement projects. Projects are prioritized on the need to protect public health and safety, improve traffic circulation, eliminate recurring maintenance expenditures and to foster economic development and well planned growth through the construction of infrastructure and facilities improvements.
