Projects can include upgrades and major maintenance to existing buildings, or creating new buildings or facilities. Types of capital improvement projects:
Projects can be funded through several means. The Facilities Maintenance Reserve Fund is expected to be the primary source for local funding. Bonding and grants may also be proposed as a mechanism for funding projects.
Projects will be scored using the nomination forms. The questions used to score projects are the same questions asked in the nomination form. Generally speaking, the nomination form questions are ordered from highest-weighed to lowest-weighed.
No, the cost of the project is not weighed.
No, the amount of times a project is nominated does not help it in the scoring process. Only one nomination for the same project is needed. (Additional support should be demonstrated in question number 24 of the nomination form.)
Engineering, public works, and department-related staff will all be on the scoring committee. We also have room for one member of the public with vertical building analysis or work-related skills.
The nomination period closes on October 11th. Nominations will be evaluated and recommendations will go to the Assembly in the form of a resolution around January 2020. Once projects have been approved by the Assembly, they will be scored by a technical scoring committee. The administration will use the technical scores to help prioritize the projects and place them into the plan. The completed 10-year plan will be presented to the Assembly around April 2020.
We are always looking for innovative ideas!
If a new facility is put into the plan, the siting of the facility will be part of the design process. Ideas for locations of new facilities are always welcome.
Generally speaking, yes. When completing the form, please keep in mind that the actual costs are not required. Staff can help fill these in during the evaluation phase.
