Capital Project Planning is a configuration of ArcGIS that can be used by local government staff to define and coordinate capital projects, engage external agencies, and share your capital improvement plan. Capital projects are typically defined for water, sewer, stormwater, and transportation assets in a community; and used to maintain, improve, and/or enhance public assets.

Individual capital projects are scoped by engineers, reviewed by local government staff, and organized in to a Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). The CIP is a short range plan that identifies capital infrastructure projects in need of renovation, repair, and/or construction. The CIP relates these projected capital needs to the financial resources necessary to support their completion and the timeframe in which both the financing and work will take place.

Capital Project Planning works with Capital Project Tracking to provide a comprehensive capital projects solution that can be used to define capital projects, coordinate project schedules, track project performance, and share project status with key stakeholders and the general public.
