Part of being a good neighbor is learning how city government works so you can make it work for your corner of Omaha. So if you’ve never heard of the city’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP), it’s time to do a little studying.
The City of Omaha’s six-year Capital Improvement Program, referred to by those ‘in the know’ as the CIP, is the primary tool used by the city to coordinate major projects involving Omaha’s street and sewer systems, parks, public facilities and other infrastructure. It is adopted annually, along with the city’s budget. The first year in the six-year CIP also functions as the city’s capital budget for that year.
A community differs from a neighborhood. Neighborhoods are merely space; whereas, communities are comprised of people living and working together forming social bonds.
