The Six Year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is a spending plan for capital projects for FY11 through FY16. This plan is reviewed and adopted each year and the FY11 projects will become part of the proposed FY11 Capital Budget. Staff recommends approval.
City Manager’s Comments: On July 27th, the City Council reviewed the Capital Improvements Program. The first year of the plan will be the one that is implemented this year. Most of the expenditures are in the water and sewer, drainage, and fleet management. Although several other projects have been identified, we have limited our plan to areas where capital funds are available.

Over the past two years, the City has conducted a series of workshops and input activities to obtain citizen participation in the update of the City’s Vision Statement. Feedback from the last community-wide workshop, held in February 2010, coupled with feedback received from the Annual Citizen Survey, published in February 2010, have now been incorporated into a comprehensive update to the City Vision Statement.
The City Vision Statement - 2010 Update retains the same core values expressed in earlier City Vision Statements; however, the concept of sustainability, especially in terms of the City’s financial health and the natural environment, has been significantly heightened. The City’s Vision is still to be achieved through attainment of goals in six (6) key areas: Education, Community Character, Growth and Development, Natural Resources, City Services and Effective Government, and Healthy Community. The specific objectives in each of these areas are where most of the updates have occurred. This is a reflection of achievements since the last Vision Statement Update in 2006, as well as changing times and community priorities.
Many individuals from the community, in addition to City staff, have assisted the Council in this update. The contributions of time, talent, and resources from these individuals have been extremely valuable and are greatly appreciated. The City Vision Statement – 2010 Update is now ready for formal adoption.
