Capital Improvements Program

The Planning Board will begin their annual review and update of the Capital Improvements Program (CIP) at a meeting on Wednesday, October 7th, 7pm, at the Corner Meeting House.  The CIP is a multi-year schedule for capital expenditures defined as projects costing in excess of $25,000 with a useful life of at least one year.  The CIP, originally adopted in 2004, is updated annually in response to the actual budget appropriated by the voters at the previous Town Meeting and requests for new or amended capital projects for the upcoming six years. 

During this annual update the Board will review capital requests from municipal departments. Members of the public are also invited to suggest needed projects by submitting a completed CIP Funding Request Form which can be obtained in the Belmont Land Use Office at the Town Hall or online. The Planning Board will hold a public hearing and once adopted, the CIP is provided to the Selectmen and Budget Committee for their consideration during the upcoming 2016 budget season.

The CIP is a budgeting tool linking Community Vision from the Master Plan with the implementation of capital projects.  The CIP assists the Selectmen and Budget Committee in developing and presenting to the voters an overall budget which avoids unanticipated expenditures by scheduling capital projects over the term of the CIP.  Historic and projected trends in revenues, expenditures and growth are evaluated along with the community’s ability to fund the cost of improvements.  The projects are prioritized by their placement over the term of the 6-year plan resulting in a more level tax rate impact.
