The City of Miami Beach 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. CIP’s current program includes unparalleled investments in quality of life infrastructure including prioritization of sea level rise with storm water system and right of way (ROW) improvement projects, parking facilities, parks improvement projects and sustainability and resilience projects necessary to improve, enhance and maintain facilities and infrastructure to meet the service demands of residents and visitors in 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 staff manages approximately 50 active projects in planning, design and construction phases. CIP’s goal is to advance the majority of these projects to completion within their respective timelines and budgets.
