Capital Improvements Program
The Planning Board has scheduled a public hearing on the proposed 2017-2022 CIP Program for 6:30pm, Monday, October 24, 2016, at the Belmont Corner Meeting House, 16 Sargent Street. Draft CIP
The Planning Board has begun the annual review and update of the Capital Improvements Program (CIP)
which 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 that were submitted from municipal departments and the public. After review and evaluation, the Planning Board will schedule a public hearing and once adopted, the CIP is provided to the Selectmen and Budget Committee for their consideration during the upcoming 2017 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.
CIP information is available in the Land Use Office and under the Community Plans page of the Info Center at www.belmontnh.org.
