Capital Improvement Projects
The city established the Office of Capital Improvement Projects (CIP) in the summer of 2001 to consolidate the city’s capital construction effort into a single entity that would serve as a focal point for planning and construction program management activities. The Office of CIP’s current program includes unparalleled multi-million-dollar investments in quality of life infrastructure including prioritization of sea level rise with storm water and right of way neighborhood improvement projects, parking facilities, parks improvement projects and sustainability and resiliency projects necessary to improve, enhance and maintain facilities and infrastructure to meet the service demands of residents and visitors to the City of Miami Beach. The Capital Improvement program is mostly funded by authorized bonds including, General Obligation, water/sewer, and storm water funding. Other sources of funding may include grants, resort tax, parking bonds, etc. At any given time, CIP manages approximately 50 active projects in their planning, design or construction phases. CIP’s ultimate goal is to advance the majority of these projects to completion on their individually planned timelines and within their established budgets.
“We are dedicated to the management of the City’s capital construction efforts and to provide the platform to comprehensively address the goals set forth in the General Obligation Bond program, the Water and Wastewater Bond program, the Stormwater Bond program, and the Redevelopment Area Infrastructure Program to improve the City’s infrastructure, public facilities, parks, beaches, golf courses and public safety equipment.”
