Capital Improvements Planning Public Investment Plan (2017)
Doug Sloan, Metro Planning Department
The current Capital Improvements Budget (CIB) does little to support efforts to coordinate investments or tie them to an overarching strategy for managing Nashville’s critical issues. Few departments use the CIB to identify when long-term needs should be met, and the budget is cluttered with projects that are out of date or that do not have Metro-wide commitment to implement. Three issues highlight the need for additional staff to oversee the CIB:
- Aligning with NashvilleNext growth & preservation strategy.
- Coordinating infrastructure work and facilities planning to responsibly manage Metro’s tax base & expenditures.
- Coordinating the CIB priorities of Metro Council and providing greater oversight to the public.
