The City of La Vista faces several infrastructure challenges, including aging roadways, limited capacity for stormwater management, and outdated water and sewer systems. The city has recognized the need to invest in infrastructure upgrades and maintenance to ensure the safety and well-being of its residents. The city has made efforts to improve its transportation network by widening roads, constructing new sidewalks and bike paths, and updating traffic signals. The city is also working to increase its water and sewer capacity to accommodate population growth and new developments. Stormwater management is another priority, and the city is investing in new infrastructure to prevent flooding and manage runoff.
Sample Highlights from the Capital Improvement Plan
Project Start Year
Project Spend Total
“City Centre Plaza Space Improvements “
“A contract was approved with RDG to design improvements and amenities for the public plaza
spaces in City Centre as well as the eight acres of land west of 84th Street adjacent to Central Park. This
work has been completed and schematic design is complete on the two small “”parks”” in the City Centre
development. The space located at Main Street and Barmettler Drive is anticipated to be the first of these
spaces to be constructed. There is already private development on two sides of this space and as City Centre
continues to build out and the Astro music venue opens in 2023, this area will be very visible and utilized by
Central Park West Design
“As part of a Placemaking and Landscape Design project, consultant RDG designed a plan for
the area adjacent to Central Park and West of 84th Street (now referred to as Central Park West) to be
used as event/festival space. The area is approximately 8 acres in size. A portion of this space has been
recommended by staff as the potential sight of a new community swimming pool and a schematic design
for event space in the surrounding area has been developed. This project would fund final design work,
creation of construction documents and development of a phasing plan for the event space in conjunction
and collaboration with similar work on the proposed swimming pool.
Library Rotunda Improvements
“Seal the rotunda at the Library. This project will be a joint venture with Metro Community
College, and the City’s portion of the project will be 42%.”
Big Papio Sewer Siphon Replacement
“The existing siphon at the junction of Thompson Creek and the Big Papillion Creek has been
exposed due to ongoing creek erosion. Temporary repairs were made to the existing siphon barrels in 2017,
however, full replacement of the sanitary sewer siphon is needed. Replacing the siphon in FY25 will allow
time for the sewer fund to accumulate enough reserve to fund the installation.”
Giles Rd Widening
“Traffic projections indicate that by 2025 the intersections of Giles Road & Eastport Parkway and
Giles Road and Southport Parkway will not be adequate to support anticipated traffic flows. This project will
look at the entire Giles Road corridor from 96th Street to the interstate and will make recommendations for
traffic flow improvement options. ”

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.
