Capital Development and Capital Improvements Program (CDCIP) Advisory Board


The Community Development and Capital Improvements Program (CDCIP) advisory board provides citizens with an opportunity to participate, in an advisory role, in the City’s planning, assessment and allocation of its community development grants and capital improvement programs. The Board provides information from persons who live and/or work in carious neighborhoods to aid the City in identifying the needs within those areas and the programs and projects to be completed as part of the City’s community development and capital improvement programs. Board members review US Department of Housing and Urban Development project/program proposals, and provide prioritized funding recommendations that pertain to the City’s Community Development Block Grant and the Emergency Solutions Grant. The Board also reviews and compiles a priority listing of project proposals pertaining to the City’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP). These recommendations are also presented to Mayor Erin Mendenhall and then forwarded to the City Council for their consideration.
