Capital Improvement Program

The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is a five-year plan that helps guide Emeryville's investment in our public buildings, parks, streets, sewers, and other City facilities. 

Projects included in the CIP are large-scale, long-term investments that build, replace, or improve public infrastructure. These capital projects are different from maintenance projects, which are not included in the CIP and are small, short-term repairs. Maintenance requests can be reported through SeeClickFix here

City staff use the CIP as a roadmap to design, construct, and repair city facilities that support a livable and sustainable Emeryville. The previous 2019-2023 CIP can be found here. Many of the previous unfinished projects will carryover into the new CIP. 

We want to hear from you! What should the City build, replace, or improve?

Fill out the CIP Priority Survey HERE (open until March 31, 2023)! 

This a public survey to collect input from Emeryville constituents on project priorities based on a draft list of projects. This draft list was developed based on the previous 2019 CIP list as well as feedback collected from members of the public who provided input in January 2023 during 9 different City Council and Community Advisory Committee meetings. Input provided through this survey will be synthesized and used to further refine this draft list of projects. Staff will develop a final list of projects later in the spring based on Council priorities and budget constraints. 

During January 2023, members of the public could submit project ideas during Emeryville City Council and Community Advisory Committee meetings by either submitting a speaker's card beforehand or providing public comment during the meeting. Please see the list of meeting days and times below.
