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 investments in quality of life infrastructure including prioritization of sea level rise with storm water and ROW Improvement projects, Parking facilities, Parks improvement projects and Sustainability & Resiliency projects necessary to improve, enhance and maintain facilities and infrastructure to meet the service demands of residents and visitors of 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. CIP is presently managing nearly 60 active projects in planning, design and construction phases. CIP’s goal is to advance the majority of these projects to completion within the next five years.
“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.”
