See the 2020-2024 Capital Improvements Program & New Interactive Map

Post Date:01/30/2020 1:49 PM
At the 12/17 Village Board meeting, the 2020-2024 Capital Improvement Program (CIP) was approved and staff was authorized to begin engineering and design work on those projects included in the 2020-2021 fiscal year.

Bartlett’s Capital Improvements Program is a valuable tool that allows the Village to take a long-range view of its infrastructure and facility needs and to plan for and provide appropriate financing for necessary projects. The Village Board reviews the five-year program each fall. This allows time to incorporate the new year projects into the upcoming budget development process. Early review also allows more time to bid construction projects, helping to keep costs down and completion timely.

The five-year CIP program for 2020-2024 totals $98,404,079. This is a 26% decrease from last year’s program. Overall, the CIP budget for the next five years shows 47% of funding allocated for sewer projects, 18% each for water and streets projects and the remaining 17% divided between economic development, golf and other projects, as shown on the pie chart.

Aside project expenses for the fiscal year 2020-21, which are firmly set, any project slated for the four years following still need to be voted on by the board every fall. 

This year, alongside the full five-year Capital Improvements Program Budget, which you can see on the Village website under the Finance Department, Village IT/GIS staff have unrolled a new interactive CIP Budget map.
This app was created to help residents understand the CIP better. It is full of charts and maps that are fully interactive so you can click to see the various projects planned for the Village.

Highlighted in the new app is the capital budget for fiscal year 2020-2021, which is $15.7 million. It is organized into the six project categories -- water; sewer; street; economic development; golf; and other projects -- each with its own tab and clickable links that allow you to zone in and view pop-ups with additional information on specific  projects. You can also expand charts, graphs and even look up your address to see what is happening on your own block.
