The County of Montgomery faces several infrastructure challenges that impact the daily lives of its residents. One of the main issues is the need to maintain and upgrade aging roads, bridges, and transportation systems to ensure safe and efficient travel. Additionally, the county’s water and sewer systems require significant investment to ensure reliable and efficient service. The county also faces challenges related to affordable housing and homelessness, which require investment in social services and infrastructure. Finally, the county must address the impacts of climate change, including extreme weather events and flooding, on critical infrastructure, including roads, buildings, and communication networks. Overall, addressing these infrastructure challenges requires significant investment in the county’s transportation, water, housing, and emergency management systems to ensure long-term sustainability and resilience.
Sample Highlights from the Capital Improvement Plan
Project Start Year
Project Spend Total
Tuckerman Lane Sidewalk
“This project provides for design and construction of a sidewalk along the south side of Tuckerman Lane from Gainsborough Road to
the end of the existing sidewalk approximately 380 feet west of Potomac Crest Drive. This project was identified during Facility
Planning of the Tuckerman Lane Bicycle and Pedestrian Improvements as a smaller, more affordable improvement that connects
Churchill High School to an existing sidewalk segment and which can be implemented more quickly than the broader scope
contemplated in the Facility Planning study.”
US 29 Pedestrian and Bicycle Improvements
“This project funds the design and construction of pedestrian and bicycle improvements to Flash stations along the US 29 corridor. First
and last mile connections to Flash BRT stations along US 29 were identified as part of the US 29 Mobility and Reliability Study effort.
These sub projects would expand and improve the existing pedestrian and bicycle network by filling gaps and upgrading existing
facilities. Potential projects could include new and upgraded crosswalks and pedestrian signals, new and upgraded curb ramps, new and
upgraded sidewalks, and new and upgraded bicycle facilities. Projects that improve ADA access will be prioritized.”

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.
