Release of the 2012-2016 Capital Improvement Plan
Each year, the Chicago Park District develops a 5-Year plan of capital projects and District-wide
programs in the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). Throughout the year, the local community, other City agencies, legislators, and internal Park District staff make requests for capital projects. Community input and a thorough internal evaluation determine what projects are in the CIP. Projects included in CIP have funds appropriated in the years 2012-2016. A planned project becomes a reality when all funding is in place. Funding sources include Park District G.O. Bond and Alternative Bond Sources, Special Recreation Assessment (SRA), Federal, State, City, and Private Grants, and Corporate and Community Donations.
