The purpose of the
Capital Improvements Plan (CIP) is to provide the City with a comprehensive
plan to address infrastructure needs throughout Castle Hills. The City of
Castle Hills has needed a long-term plan to address streets and drainage in the
community. A CIP establishes a system of examining and prioritizing
infrastructure needs which includes a timing, phasing, location, and funding of
capital improvements in a comprehensive manner.
In November 2018, the City of Castle Hills approved its first Five-Year Capital Improvements Plan (CIP) Phase I – Streets. In March 2019, City Council approved the second phase of the CIP for drainage. Phase II - Drainage encapsulates all of the City of Castle Hill’s identified watersheds with an updated cost and prioritization schedule to address flooding in the community. The second phase for drainage identifies a need of $18 million within the five watersheds and outlines all projects, identifies needs, probable cost and provides a prioritization schedule over a five-year period.
Upon final completion, the CIP Phase I and II collectively houses all streets and drainage infrastructure projects into a five-year program that weighs the City's capital needs against available funding. As a result, the City now has a total magnitude of the necessary needs and funding for these infrastructure projects. This complete document now allows the City to coordinate projects with other entities, like SAWS and provides a basis for formulation of possible bond programs in the future.
