The City of Auburn, located in Washington State, faces various infrastructure challenges. One of the primary challenges is the need to improve and maintain the city’s roads, bridges, and transportation systems to accommodate its growing population. Additionally, the city has identified the need to address stormwater management and upgrade aging water and sewer systems. Auburn also seeks to enhance its public facilities and parks, including expanding and upgrading its community center and recreation programs to meet the needs of its residents. Finally, the city aims to improve its communication infrastructure to support economic development and better serve its citizens.
Sample Highlights from the Capital Improvement Plan
Project Start Year
Project Spend Total
Lea Hill Road/112th Ave SE Roundabout
“The project will construct a single-lane roundabout at the 112th Avenue SE intersection with Lea Hill Road. The intersection is
currently stop-controlled on the 112th Avenue SE approach. The project will also implement turn restrictions at the Lea Hill
Road intersection with 105th Place SE, and remove the existing span wire traffic signal. The project will improve traffic
operations, safety and non-motorized access.”
124th Ave SE Widening (SE 312th St to SE 318th St)
“This project will widen 124th Avenue SE to create a four-lane section with bicycle and pedestrian facilities SE 318th St and SE
312th St. The project will also construct improvements at the SE 312th St/124th Ave SE intersection (including adding bike
lanes, dual westbound left-turn lanes, dual southbound through-lanes, a northbound right-turn pocket, ITS improvements, and
pedestrian safety improvements). The project is needed to improve traffic operations along the corridor and to accommodate
all travel modes.”
C Street SW Preservation (GSA Signal to Ellingson Road SE)
“The project will grind and overlay C Street SW from the GSA signal (approximately 2,000 feet to the south of 15th Street SW)
to Ellingson Road SE. The project also includes ADA upgrades to curb ramps and pedestrian push buttons, and replacement
Sewer Pump Station Replacement/Improvement Program
“The Sewer Utility’s infrastructure currently consists of 17 public sewer pump stations that range in age from 2 to over 50
years old. As those stations age, and utility operations change, considerations such as station condition, component
condition, capacity, reliability, and safety suggest that stations be upgraded, rehabilitated, and replaced.
This program fund will provide funding to meet those needs through 2026.
Comprehensive Plan Project #4.”
Jet A Fueling Facility
“Construct any necessary site improvements to accommodate a temporary 2,000 gallon fueling truck for Jet A fuel on site in 2018.
Design and Construct a permanent 12,000 gallon Fuel Tank for Jet A service at Airport in 2022 and 2023 after the runway extension is
complete and demand for Jet A fuel is established. 50% split of funding between the airport and a private party.”

How to Read a Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) for Business Development?
When a city, municipality or state issues a Capital Improvement Plan (CIP), it can be overwhelming and daunting, but there are a few key things you need to investigate. Let’s start with the definition of CIP – A Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) contains all the individual capital projects, equipment purchases, and major studies for a local government; in conjunction with construction and completion schedules, and in consort with financing plans. The plan provides a working blueprint for sustaining and improving the community’s infrastructures. It coordinates strategic planning, financial capacity, and physical development. A CIP stands at the epicenter of a government’s Planning, Public Works, and Finance departments. When a CIP is issued, it typically includes the following information:
- A listing of the capital projects or equipment to be purchased
- The projects ranked in order of preference
- The plan for financing the projects
- A timetable for the construction or completion of the project
- Justification for the project
- Explanation of expenses for the project
Now, for business development, while the capital plan is interesting, the capital program is for capital expenditures that extends five to ten years beyond the capital budget. Knowing the difference is important so you can influence upcoming program versus just responding to an RFP.
