What is ICIP? Infrastructure Capital Improvement Plan

E-mail Print PDF

GRANTS – ICIP is a five-year plan that establishes planning priorities for anticipated capital projects. The state-coordinated process encourages local governments to plan for the development of capital improvements to that they do not find themselves in emergency situations, but can plan for, fund, and develop infrastructure at a pace that sustains their activities.

The City of Grants has participated in the ICIP for many years. Last year, the top-five projects approved by the city’s council  included: 1) broadband and fiber optics network; 2) water, sewer, drainage, and streets; 3) First and Second Streets and Roosevelt Avenue road projects and utility; 4) flooding at Washington and Jefferson Streets; and, 5) booster tank and water tanks.

Each year, ICIP five-year plans are required an update. A public hearing to gather additional input from Grants residents in regard to what projects you feel the city should focus on is being held Aug. 24 at 5:30 pm at City Hall, 600 W. Santa Fe Ave. City of Grants officials encourage residents to attend and provide input.

After compiling input from the public, the city’s special project office will prepare a final list for approval by the city council during a special meeting on Aug. 29 at noon. The list is due to the state by Sept. 1.

For more information about the city’s ICIP list, call the special projects office at (505) 285-3981.
