The Capital Improvement Budget (CIB) is how we fund the construction and maintenance of City infrastructure. This includes improvements in streets, bridges, libraries, parks, recreation centers, and other public facilities and infrastructure. The budget is composed of a variety of state, federal, and local funding sources. The CIB Committee is an advisory body of 18 Saint Paul residents that recommends projects and funding levels to the Mayor every year by June 30. The Capital Improvement Budget is approved by the Mayor and City Council annually.
For this year’s Capital Improvement Budget, City departments are submitting proposals for projects to improve the quality of life in our community. Community members are invited to learn more about the projects departments are proposing through an upcoming series of virtual meetings:
Monday, March 15th at 7pm – Parks and Recreation
Thursday, March 18th at 6:30pm – Police, Fire, and Libraries
Monday, March 22nd at 6:30pm – Public Works
Meeting log-in information will be shared with those who register here.
Community members are also invited to share their feedback on which projects the CIB Committee should prioritize in their recommendation. The survey is open now until end of the day Friday, April 2nd.
The link to the survey, as well as more info on the CIB process, can be found at www.stpaul.gov/cib.
