Capital Improvement Program
Article VI, Section 601 of the Charter of the Town of Brunswick requires the Town Manager to prepare a five-year Capital Improvement Program (CIP), to be submitted at the same time the annual budget is submitted. It is also referred to as a Capital Improvement Plan. In February 2013, the Town Council adopted a CIP policy (PDF) intended to guide the development of the CIP document and its integration with the annual budget.
The CIP includes a list of all capital improvements proposed over the next five fiscal years. It also includes cost estimates, methods of financing, and recommended time schedules for each such improvement. Finally, the CIP includes the estimated annual cost of operating and maintaining the facilities to be constructed and acquired.
The 2023-2027 CIP was adopted on May 12, 2022, and the 2024-2028 CIP is currently being developed.
2024-2028 CIP drafts and presentations:
CIP workshops are hosted by the Finance Committee, and all Councilors are invited to attend. Workshops are televised and available to view on demand in the agenda center under Capital Improvement Program (CIP) Workshops.

The Council may adopt the CIP with or without amendment after a public hearing. However, the Council is not prevented from pursuing and funding other projects not included in the CIP, even if those projects are to be funded with debt obligations of the Town.
Copies of the Town’s adopted CIPs are available below. Please note that these documents reflect information available at the time they were prepared, and may not contain all of the projects the Town contemplates funding over the next five years.
Current CIP (PDF) | Archived CIPs
The CIPs listed are presented for archival purposes only. The CIP is a planning document, and reflects information at the time it was prepared. The Town’s capital improvement needs and plans may have changed, perhaps materially, since these CIPs were prepared. Further, the Town may consider and pursue projects not listed in the CIPs.
Projects contemplated by the Town, regardless of whether they are listed in the CIPs, must be formally authorized and funded before they can proceed. Authorization and project funding may come in several different forms. For debt, that authorization is by ordinance, as required by the Charter of the Town of Brunswick. Those seeking more recent or additional information should call the Finance Department at 207-725-6652.
