Salt Lake City's Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is a multi-year planning program of capital expenditures needed to replace or expand the City's public infrastructure. Capital improvements involve the construction, purchase or rehabilitation of City’s infrastructure including buildings, parks, streets, sidewalks, bridges, transportation, traffic signals or other physical structures. A capital improvement must have a useful life of five or more years. It also must provide one of the following two elements: has a cost of $50,000 or more and/or satisfies the functionality of a capital asset. A capital asset is a type of asset that is not easily sold in the regular course of a business's operations for cash and is generally owned for its role in contributing to the business's ability to generate profit. It is expected that the benefits gained from the asset will extend beyond a time span of five years. A capital improvement is not a recurring capital outlay item (such as a motor vehicle or a fire engine) or a maintenance expense (such as fixing a leaking roof or painting park benches). Acquisition of equipment is not a capital project unless it is an integral part of the capital project. 
 
Three elements guide the City in determining the annual schedule of infrastructure improvements and budgets. These include the current fiscal year's capital budget, the Impact Fee Facility Plan (IFFP) and the City's Master Plans.  
 
The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) Application form is the basic source of information of all proposed projects that could be funded within the CIP process utilizing general fund, Class C funds and/or Impact fees.  It will be used by the Community Development Capital Improvement Program Board (CDCIP Board) and CIP Staff in preparing and presenting funding recommendations to the Mayor and City Council during the annual CIP process.
