The City of Orlando, Florida, faces several significant infrastructure challenges that impact the daily lives of its residents. The aging water and sewer systems are among the most pressing issues, which require costly repairs and upgrades to maintain safe and reliable service. Additionally, the city’s transportation networks require modernization and expansion to reduce congestion and improve safety, including upgrades to roads, highways, and public transit options. Orlando also needs to invest in affordable housing developments to meet the needs of its growing population and improve access to high-speed internet to support economic growth and improve the quality of life for its residents. Addressing these challenges will require collaboration and investment from local and state officials and private sector stakeholders.

CT Phase 2 – Oregon St (Fern Creek to Shine)
This is the second phase of the colonial town project. This includes new drainage and roadway improvements on Oregon St from Fern Creek to Shine. This phase of the improvements include stormwater conveyance piping (from Fern Creek Avenue to Shine Avenue) and connecting manholes, inlets and secondary piping, wastewater improvements within the project limits, and improved secondary system (with baffle box) to the existing drainage well to be maintained. Improvements are also anticipated at three intersections (Shine Avenue, Spokane Avenue, and Fern Creek Avenue) to tie into overall design and meet ADA requirements.
Pasadena Street Drainage
The purpose of the project is to mitigate flooding on the intersection of Marks and Irma and Pasadena Streets. The existing stormwater will be rerouted to Lake Highland via approximately 1600 linear feet of 48 inch and 54 inch storm pipes. The proposed improvements will provide a LOS that would meet the City’s criteria.
Summerlin Ave Stormwater Improvements & Roadway Restoration
Remove the existing asphalt installed over the old brick and rebuild the road with brick. Make improvements to the stormwater infrastructure as needed.
Lift Station 248 Replacement
The overall project will include the decommissioning and abandonment of the existing LS 248 wet well and construction of a new LS 248 on the same parcel. The new lift station will include a new wet well, submersible pumps, piping, instrumentation and controls, standby emergency generator, Electrical Building, and miscellaneous site work. The existing odor control system, which was replaced in 2017, will remain and be reconfigured to serve the new station.

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.
