Capital Improvements Program (CIP)

Update: CIP: Next steps

This summer and fall, the capital budget season will be in full swing for the FY17-22 CIP. The Planning Board will meet with staff in several work sessions to discuss strategies, ideas and the numbers for a new six-year capital imporvements program that they will present to Montgomery County Government in October.

In preparation, we have been reviewing project ideas and feedback from the public comments at the joint forum with M-NCPPC and and Montgomery County Recreation held on April 23, 2015 and from staff. Upcoming meetings with the Planning Board include:

  • Strategy Sessions (July 9 & 30)
  • Work Sessions this fall (September 3 & 24)
  • Adoption Session (October 8)

Closer to the meeting dates, the Planning Board agendas and staff reports may be found here.

About the Capital Improvements Program

The Parks Department CIP is prepared every two years and projects capital expenditures throughout a six-year cycle.

The capital budget funds parkland acquisitions, environmental and cultural stewardship projects, new park or facility development, and renovations and infrastructure improvements.

Current FY15-20 CIP for Montgomery Parks:

The Department of Parks' FY15-20 CIP was adopted in May 2014. See list of all Parks' capital projects and individual Project Description Forms (PDFs).

The Montgomery County Recreation Department (MCRD) is a separate agency with its own capital budget which funds recreational facilities such as community centers and pools. Information on the MCRD CIP is also available on Montgomery County Government's CIP page.
