Planning Commission review of local government Capital Improvement Programs

October 2017 – Annually, the Planning Commission conducts a review of proposed Capital Improvement Programs (CIPs) for Hillsborough County, the City of Tampa, and the City of Temple Terrace for consistency with their respective Comprehensive Plans. The CIPs are an important part of implementing the goals of each government’s Plan. Planning Commission staff works with local government staff to ensure that proposed expenditures are given to projects that are aligned with the long-term policy direction of the community. Examples of the types of adopted Goals, Objectives and Policies related to this analysis include the number and types of projects planned in the Coastal High Hazard Area or Urban Service Area Boundary and projects that serve existing development over ones that serve new growth. The above illustrates some of these areas. This year the CIPs were all in alignment with the direction of the Comprehensive Plans.
