The City of Cincinnati faces several infrastructure challenges that impact the daily lives of its residents. One of the main issues is the need to maintain and upgrade aging roads, bridges, and transportation systems to ensure safe and efficient travel. Additionally, the city’s water and sewer systems require significant investment to ensure reliable and efficient service. The city also faces challenges related to affordable housing and homelessness, which require investment in social services and infrastructure. Finally, the city must address the impacts of climate change, including extreme weather events and flooding, on critical infrastructure, including roads, buildings, and communication networks. Overall, addressing these infrastructure challenges requires significant investment in the city’s transportation, water, housing, and emergency management systems to ensure long-term sustainability and resilience.
Sample Highlights from the Capital Improvement Plan
Project Start Year
Project Spend Total
Muddy Creek WWTP EHRT and Pump Station
“This project is located at the Muddy Creek WWTP in the Sayler Park neighborhood of the City of Cincinnati,
Hamilton County, Ohio. The project includes the planning, design and construction of a raw sewage pump-
ing facility and high rate treatment facility to serve the Muddy Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant. Firm
pumping capacity will be increased to 35 MGD. HRT will be designed to treat wet weather needs of the cur-
rent conveyance system with future expansion to accommodate anticipated future wet weather needs.”
Polk Run WWTP Effluent Pumping Improvements
This project will provide resources for Polk Run WWTP Effluent Pumping Improvements
Dry Run Area Sewers Phase 2 Contract RB
“The project will provide resources for constructing approximately 5,968 linear feet of 42-inch sanitary sewer,
along with manholes and other appurtenances. The project is entirely along Roundbottom Road, starting at
a point approximately 1,150 feet northeast of the intersection of Roundbottom and Edwards Roads at the
terminus of Contract A and ending at point approximately 970 feet northeast of the intersection with Broad-
well Road. The project is located in Anderson Township, Hamilton County, Ohio. PDE was accomplished
Hydraulic Modeling 2025
“Sewer modeling is used to assist in the planning and design process and is required as part of the Global
Consent Decree and MSD’s CSO NPDES permit. MSD is committed to ensuring its system-wide model
meets the latest standards and provides the best available tool for assessing, planning, and designing MSD’s
infrastructure. Work completed for specific projects will be charged to project IDs. This allowance will be
used to incorporate project specific model changes into the System-Wide Model for each of MSD’s seven
sewersheds. Prior legislation was funded for the Hydraulic Model Program under various Project IDs.”
CIP Planning Projects 2025
“In general, this allowance provides appropriated funds for the BCE level planning of capital projects that
have gone through a project nomination phase PNom and Stage Gate SG #1 approval for advancement to
the design phase and/or legacy projects which are pending planning. This is consistent with the MSD proj-
ect delivery system PDS that is based on the use of appropriate stage gates to confirm project intent and
progress for approval to progress to next phase. These efforts involve a significant amount of alternative
analysis directed towards determining the best option, or options, to be evaluated and confirmed during the
planning phase. Consistent with past practice, MSD use of the planning allowances ensures that charges to
the allowances are allocated to individual capital projects once they are approved and established in Oracle
iWave system. Once the BCE is completed a project will be confirmed via SG-2 and if approved setup in the
system as a standalone project with a budget and schedule.”

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. If reading the CIP makes your head explode, or you want to save time, Request a Demo of Citylitics CIP dashboard with over 20,000 CIPs from USA and Canada.
