Resolution Approving the 2021 to 2025 Five-Year Capital Improvement Program




Executive Summary


The Town’s Five-Year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) for the years 2021 to 2025 is hereby submitted for consideration/adoption (Exhibit 1).


The purpose of a Five-Year CIP is to comply with Charter requirements and to present planning for future capital improvement projects consistent with Town Council's established goals and priorities within projected available financial resources. The first year of the CIP, 2021, corresponds with the projects and department budgets included in the 2021 Budget. Future years, 2022 through 2025, show the state of current thinking and are intended to be a planning tool and do not constitute actual financial or project commitments by the Town. A Five-Year CIP is required to be adopted by Council each year by Resolution concurrent with the process of adopting the annual budget.


This updated Five-Year CIP information is based on use of the current impact fees as adopted with the 2018 impact fee study, which include the incorporation of inflationary indices. In addition, proposed changes to Castle Rock Water’s System Development Fee revenue have been incorporated for CIP planning as presented by Castle Rock Water within their 2020 rate and fee study. 


The Five-Year CIP is an important component of Town planning including the identification of and provision for potential future projects. All planning as shown in the Five-Year CIP is subject to both future Council approvals and availability of funds.




While there are many projects occurring in 2021, the CIP has some significant items of note that merit Council’s attention due to their impacts on the 2021 Budget such as:
