The City of Powell Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) sets a course of action and establishes a blueprint for investment in its capital infrastructure. This fiscal management and community planning tool helps coordinate the location, timing and financing of capital improvements over a five-year period. This plan includes primary and secondary priority project narratives and project scopes along with opinions of cost, next steps and potential financing sources. Projects in the CIP include non-recurring physical expenditures such as land, buildings and public infrastructure.
