County of Fairfax, Virginia

Population (Year): 1140000  (2021)

The County of Fairfax faces several key infrastructure challenges. One of the primary challenges is the maintenance and improvement of its aging transportation network, including roads, bridges, and public transit. Another challenge is the need for affordable housing to accommodate the county’s growing population. Additionally, the county’s water and wastewater infrastructure requires upgrading to ensure it can meet the needs of residents and businesses. Finally, the county must also address its stormwater management systems, which are essential for reducing the risk of flooding and protecting water quality.

“Tim Harmon Campus Renovations – 2024”


“$39,000,000 is estimated for
renovations at the Tim Harmon Campus. This campus includes A New Beginning/Fairfax Detox
and the Cornerstones Facility. A New Beginning and Fairfax Detox are two distinct programs
located in a shared facility built in 1994. A New Beginning is an 8–12 week residential substance
abuse treatment program for 35 adults that provides rehabilitation services to adults with
substance use and co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders. Fairfax Detox
Center is a residential facility that provides a supervised, structured, supportive and therapeutic
environment for individuals to safely detoxify from alcohol and other drugs. The program is
licensed for 32 beds. The Cornerstones Facility was built in 1992 and is a 16-bed residential
treatment program and community reintegration program for adults with co-occurring substance
use disorders and mental illness. On average, 4 -7 applicants wait 3 to 4 months for admission.
Renovations are required to: replace outdated building systems, including obsolete food service
equipment, plumbing and mechanical systems; address code compliance issues including
licensure, building code, HIPAA; adapt the building design for the changing program and
service needs; integrate technology, and update the building design to be more efficient and
withstand heavy use. Modifications to the facility would also include enlargement of common
use space, storage capacity and modernization of facility security, including fencing, locks and
security systems. Reconfiguration and expansion of the medication suite would also improve secure access to medications and improve capacity to meet complex treatment regimens for
patients with multiple conditions. Adding onsite supportive housing components with studio style
units will allow independent living as a new component to the campus that is evidence-based
and increases the potential for positive clinical outcomes for program clients. This project is
planned as part of the 2024 Community Health and Human Services Bond Referendum.”

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:

  1. A listing of the capital projects or equipment to be purchased
  2. The projects ranked in order of preference
  3. The plan for financing the projects
  4. A timetable for the construction or completion of the project
  5. Justification for the project
  6. 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.
