According to the City of Billings, the Capital Improvement Project (CIP) is a "a five-year program that identifies needs for construction of capital projects or improvements to the City’s infrastructure."

On Tuesday (10/20), the public will have its first opportunity to see a presentation of the city's proposed plan for the 2022-2026 fiscal year, and because of COVID-19 it will be virtual.

The first of two planned Online Public Presentations will be held at 12 noon MDT this Tuesday, October 20. The second will be at 5:30 pm MDT on Wednesday, October 21, with archived recording available following the presentations on the City of Billings Facebook page.

According to the City of Billings website, examples of Capital Improvement Projects are street reconstruction, new fire station, or playground replacement at a park. CIP's are not street pothole repair, or additional police patrol.
