In August, the Salt Lake City Council approved funding for 33 new Capital Improvement Program (CIP) projects in a concerted effort to enhance roads, parks, and neighborhoods citywide.
Applications for FY2024-25 are now open through September 30, 2023, for residents, neighborhood groups, community organizations, and business districts to submit constituent-proposed projects.
Salt Lake City’s Capital Improvement Program replaces or expands the City’s public infrastructure through the construction, purchase, or rehabilitation of City infrastructure, including buildings, parks, streets, sidewalks, bridges, transportation features, traffic signals, or other physical structures.
- The minimum request amount is $50,000
- The maximum request amount is $500,000
- The capital project must have a useful life of 5 or more years
- The capital project must be a Salt Lake City-owned asset
- Community outreach is required
- Funds for CIP are allocated annually through a competitive process and will be decided on in Fall 2024
These projects could be funded within the CIP process utilizing General Fund, Class C Funds, and/or Impact Fees. The applications are used by the Community Development Capital Improvement Program Board (CDCIP Board) and CIP Staff in preparing and presenting funding recommendations to the Mayor and City Council during the annual CIP process.
Examples of CIP projects recently funded for FY2023-24 include Cottonwood Park Trailhead and Parklet; Jefferson Park improvements; Complete Streets Reconstruction; safer crossings on Main St., Glendale Park, and citywide; Livable Streets traffic calming program; and The Other Side Village and 9-Line urban trails.
