Capital Improvement Program

What is the Capital Improvement Program (CIP)?


The CIP is the city's long-range plan for improvements to infrastructure, parks and other community facilities. The CIP is a tool to assess the long-term capital needs, values and desires of the city and to establish funding of high-priority projects in a timely, cost-effective manner.

CIP Goals


The following are goals of the CIP:
  • Provide a planned replacement of deteriorating infrastructure
  • Repair deteriorated infrastructure
  • Improve operational or functional aspects of existing infrastructure
  • Add new facilities and improve the community’s infrastructure to enhance the quality of life in Creve Coeur
  • Provide for planned replacement of major equipment required for City operations

5-Year CIP Process (FY 2019-2023)


Each CIP covers a five-year period and is updated annually beginning in November through late March/early April. Public input is an integral part of the planning process for each CIP.

A draft of the CIP for FY 2019-2023 was submitted to City Council by the second meeting in February. 

Once staff prepares the draft CIP, the Planning and Zoning Commission and Finance Committee review the plan and forward recommendations to the City Council. The City Council reviews the plan, holds a public hearing and ultimately decides the CIP's adoption. A public hearing for the CIP FY 2019-2023 is scheduled for April 9, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. in the Council Chamber.
