Welcome to Our 2021 Capital Improvement Budget!


This year, we are inviting you to share your feedback on projects that city departments are proposing to include in the 2022 and 2023 capital budgets. Click on the survey link below to learn more about department projects and tell us which ones you'd like to see prioritized as part of the CIB Committee's recommendation to the mayor.


ABOUT THE CIB PROCESS


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 Capital Improvement Budget is approved by the Mayor and City Council annually. Projects are recommended for funding by the CIB Committee, an advisory body of 18 Saint Paul residents that recommends projects and funding levels to the Mayor every year by June 30.


The committee is asked to evaluate proposed projects using the following considerations:


  1. Equity and inclusion: Budgeting decisions reflect our commitment to equity. The CIB Committee supports identifying ways to invite more voices to the table and ensure investments are distributed equitably throughout the City.

  2. Strategic investments: Capital investments all feed into a larger, more comprehensive strategic framework that takes advantage of data and ensures maximum return on investment.

  3. Fiscal responsibility: Existing infrastructure such as roads, bridges and sidewalks – as well as existing parks and libraries facilities – are well-tended. Maintenance is prioritized.
