The proposed plan represents efforts to assess and effectively plan for the County's capital budget. It forecasts anticipated expenditures and the approximate timing and source of funding for each project. The plan represents a balance between available resources and competing County priorities, while ensuring compliance with the County's fiscal policies. While the recommended FY2018 capital budget is largely comprised of the County's most pressing capital needs, it also includes pre-planning for major projects recommended in subsequent years. A project in the Five-Year CIP does not constitute a guarantee of funding from the County; projects will be added, deleted and/or amended as necessary, in accordance with guidance provided by the Board.
