The City of Springfield is in the process of determining what improvement projects will be worked on in the coming years. As the City develops its Capital Improvement Program (CIP) for 2023-2027, we’re looking for ideas from community members to help guide the process.

The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) provides a five-year outlook of the City’s planned physical improvements. Examples of capital projects include construction or repair of streets, wastewater or stormwater systems, pedestrian ramps and sidewalks, bike paths, streetlights, and street landscaping. The CIP includes cost estimates and projected financing sources for each project.

To submit a project request to be considered for the 2023-2027 CIP, community members can visit the CIP webpage and complete the Capital Improvement Project Request Form at The deadline to submit the project request form is Wednesday, September 15.

After community members submit their ideas, staff will prioritize suggestions along with suggestions from other local public agencies, and existing facilities plans. The program will be reviewed during a City Council work session in early 2022. The City Council will then hold a public hearing before adoption.
