The City of Torrance, located in Los Angeles County, California, faces several infrastructure challenges. One of the main issues is aging infrastructure, particularly with regards to the city’s water and sewer systems, which require significant investment to maintain and upgrade. Additionally, traffic congestion is a significant concern, with the city experiencing heavy traffic on major roadways during peak hours. The city is also at risk of natural disasters, such as earthquakes and wildfires, which can damage critical infrastructure and disrupt services. Finally, the city’s aging stormwater system is also a challenge, requiring significant investment to upgrade and maintain.
Sample Highlights from the Capital Improvement Plan
Project Start Year
Project Spend Total
FEAP: TBD; Post-Production – TCtv
“Post-Production systems that will provide a full set of high performance built-in features for editing
video, managing audio, creating real-time effects and titles, adding graphics, compositing and
working seamlessly with third-party applications.”
“FEAP: 981; HVAC Major Maintenance and Replacements”
This project will replace HVAC equipment at the Toyota Meeting Hall and Torrance Art Museum.
FEAP: 983; Upgrade Interior Lighting – Civic Center
“This project will upgrade interior lighting by retrofit or replacement at the following locations:
• City Hall & East Annex
• Civic Center Library
• Police Department
• City Yard – Services Building”
FEAP: TBD; Wide Format Flatbed Printer
“This device will improve productivity of printing on solid substrates, such as metal, wood and
plastic, with the ability to cutout designs for signage and displays. This type of device incorporates
a vacuum design to hold the substrate in place where our current equipment does not have this
ability. This will also allow to print on flat surfaces as well as irregularly shaped and uneven surface
materials. White ink printing will allow for additional design and print capabilities.”
“FEAP: 851; El Retiro Park and Henrietta Pump Station Facilities for Permanent Backup Generator Equipment”
“Install permanent backup generators for sewer pump stations and build a facility to house the
equipment. The new building will serve to protect the equipment and for noise abatement when
the generators are running (because these areas are adjacent to residential homes).”

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.
