Request for 2019-2023 Capital Improvement Project submissions

Kevin PowellCity, Construction

The process of developing the 2019-2023 Capital Improvement Plan has begun and the public is encouraged to submit improvement projects for consideration.  If you have specific projects with an estimated cost of $100,000 or more with a life expectancy of over five years that addresses a need in your neighborhood or elsewhere in the City; or, if you are developing a project that will be funded through the creation of benefit districts and you anticipate City participation, now is the time to submit those projects.

Each year, the City of Lawrence prepares a Capital Improvement Plan (CIP).  This five-year CIP allows the City to identify the needs of the community and to prepare a long-term funding strategy to meet those needs.  It includes any projects that involve needed repairs or improvements to our existing infrastructure (streets, parks, city facilities, sewers, etc.) and the acquisition or construction of new infrastructure (fire stations, traffic signals, roundabouts, etc.) with an estimated cost of $100,000 or more.

You can access more information and the electronic forms on the City’s website at: https://lawrenceks.org/budget/capital-improvement/

The deadline for submitting is 5:00 p.m. on March 30, 2018.  Materials can be delivered in person to the City Finance Department at City Hall, 6 East 6th Street or by mail, Attn: CIP, P.O. Box 708, Lawrence, KS 66044.

Please contact Bryan Kidney at 785-832-3214 or bkidney@lawrenceks.org with any questions.

The City looks forward to hearing from you.
