The City of Syracuse faces several infrastructure challenges, including an aging water system that requires significant repairs and upgrades, and an outdated combined sewer system that can lead to sewage overflows during heavy rain events. Additionally, the city’s transportation infrastructure needs improvement, including upgrading roads, bridges, and public transit. The city also faces challenges related to affordable housing, as many low-income families struggle to find safe and affordable housing. Finally, the city’s aging building stock poses challenges related to energy efficiency and accessibility for people with disabilities.

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.
