Viable communities depend on good infrastructure planning and financing and only with well thought out capital facilities plans are governments able to effectively and realistically provide for growth and a high quality of life.
The CIP is part of the GMA requirement for cities and counties to approve and maintain a comprehensive plan which includes a capital facilities element consisting of an inventory of existing capital facilities, a forecast of future needs for facilities, a six year plan for financing such facilities, and reassessment of the land use elements.
The CIP presents a schedule of major public facility improvements that are planned within the next six year period. Project design, land acquisition, and constructions costs as well as the projected means of financing these costs are an integral component of this plan.
This plan will be presented to the Mount Vernon City Council on August 9, 2017. The Council will hear public comments on the plan. If you have problems viewing this document or wish to order a printed copy please contact us at 360-336-6207.
