Capital Improvement Planning Workshop Offered

The North Central Regional Planning Commission will host an educational workshop about the benefits of and process of Capital Improvement Planning for Local Government. Capital Improvement Plans (CIP) act as long term guides that provide a schedule of construction or acquisition of capital improvements and provide a framework for how they will be funded.

Participation in the workshop is encouraged from anyone in our 12-county service area whether you have a plan that needs updating or have never had a capital improvement plan for your city or county. We will go over in detail an 8-Step Capital Improvement Planning Process developed by the Kansas Association of Regional Development Organizations. In addition, you will leave with valuable worksheets and educational materials to use and share with your local government. We will also review the results of our CIP survey that was sent out to all cities and counties in our region. We are confident this will be an excellent learning opportunity and encourage several members of your local government to attend! Choose the date and location most convenient for you.

Take the Survey!

The NCRPC is asking for your participation in a survey developed to help us gather information about the wants and needs within the cities and counties we serve. The purpose of the survey is to gather information in order to help communities begin to develop a capital improvement plan specific to each individual city/county situation. In addition, we hope this survey can lead to regional benefits by determining projects which could be accomplished on a regional level but not necessarily a local level.
