The City of Longmont is facing several infrastructure challenges, including a growing population, aging water and wastewater systems, and the need for increased transportation options. The city has experienced significant growth in recent years, leading to increased demands on its roads, water treatment plants, and other critical infrastructure. The city is working to address these challenges by investing in new infrastructure projects, including expanding public transportation options, upgrading water and wastewater systems, and improving roadways to accommodate increased traffic. Additionally, the city is focusing on implementing sustainable infrastructure solutions, such as green infrastructure and renewable energy systems, to address both environmental concerns and long-term infrastructure needs.
Sample Highlights from the Capital Improvement Plan
Project Start Year
Project Spend Total
Roosevelt Park Improvements
“The current funding request for this project includes design and implementation of a new outdoor fitness area which has been a long-requested community
More broadly, in future years, this project also includes completion of the final phases of redevelopment of Roosevelt Park which includes removal of the open
air storage shed, reconfiguration and expansion of the east parking lot, construction of a new storage area for ice pavilion equipment and installation of a brick
monument at the northeast entrance of the park.
2024 funding is for planning, design and implementation of the outdoor fitness area. Funding for replacement of the playground at Roosevelt Park is requested
in PRO186 Park Infastructure Rehabilitation and Replacement and is not included in this CIP, however the two projects will be coordinated. Funding for
removal of the open air storage shed, parking lot re-do, ice pavilion storage and brick monument is not yet being requested in this CIP. (KK)”
Kensington Park Rehabilitation
“This project involves the redevelopment of Kensington Park per the approved master plan. Portions of the master plan have been completed in phases and
some has been completed as part of park renewal and lifecycle replacement program such as the playground replacements. New park amenities and work
north of Longs Peak Avenue include: concrete pathway, volleyball court, open lawn picnic area, a new shelter, enhanced lighting, ADA compliance, and water
quality improvements to the existing pond. New amenities and work south of Longs Peak Avenue includes: improved lighting, an informal skate area, and a
community garden. (KK)”
Alta Park Master Planned Improvements
“This CIP project provides funds to complete the master planned improvements at Alta Park with a new unisex restroom which are standard in neighborhood
parks as well as lighting and site improvements. (KK)”
Sisters Community Park
“Sisters Community Park is located in southeast Longmont south of Quail Campus and east of Wertman Park. The land is currently being managed by Boulder
County for agricultural use, per a previous agreement with the county. This undeveloped community park is not slated for master planning or construction in
the next 5+ years, but a community need could be realized there in the interim.
This proposed project would remove +/- 15 acres from agricultural production and transform it into a temporary bike skills area. The project would be bare
bones – port-o-let, gravel lot and dirt mounds for people to use for their bikes. The community has long desired a facility such as what is proposed, as the one
located near Union Reservoir in years past is no longer there. This use would be clearly defined as temporary, with the possibility that it could be included in
the future Master Plan for the park. The current development of the Wertman Neighborhood Park west of this site and development north of Quail Road add
some interest in use for this area. (SAR)”
Civic Center Rehabilitation
“Replacement and repair of the Civic Center complex where current conditions are poor and improvements are needed to restore conditions to an average state to slow further
deterioration of these areas and systems. Recommendation to address current conditions include structural, general construction components, mechanical systems, plumbing
systems, and electrical systems within all four quadrants of the complex. Timing to implement these recommendations were phased in 3 groups (immediate, 3-5 years, and 5-10
years). Areas include Administration East, Council Chamber, City Manager, Exterior, Finance, Mall, Parking, and Purchasing/ETS. Phase 1 included the 2016 post tensioned slab
investigation found significant issues with the slab. Additional repairs, which were not included in previous CIP’s, at an additional cost of $5 million commenced in 2018 and
completed in 2020. The phase 2 scope of work in 2020 and 2021 included: Exterior repairs; Including north plaza repairs similarly to south side slab repairs; Council Chambers and
Mall area repairs; Administration East and Finance West area repairs; City Manager and Purchasing / ETS area repairs. (Condition repairs for the four interior quadrants were
indentified as needs within the next 5 years and completed with approved bond funds). Beyond the currently identified scope there are future needs for this CIP project called
phase 3 starting with 2025 design and planning funds for construction implementation in 2026 at an estimated total project additional need of $6,639,551. Work includes
recommendation for doors, windows, envelope, and interior needs. This phase 3 funding need was not included as scope within the 2019 approved bond funds.”

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.
