The end of the Capital Improvement Program continuum involves the maintenance of a facility, but only as it relates to needed remodeling, redevelopment, repurposing, etc. of a pre-existing county facility.
The CIP continuum does not include the daily or monthly operations and expenses of a facility, but rather longer-term upgrades that extend the life expectancy of a facility and/or improve energy efficiency. The need for remodeling, redeveloping, and repurposing a facility often arises from maintenance challenges and expenses, changed uses for a building, as well as from general wear and tear caused by usage and time.
Roads, buildings, and portions of recreational and public safety facilities will all experience some type of redevelopment or improvement need for maintenance purposes as the facility is used and ages.
Contemplation of these improvements simultaneously completes the end of the continuum and returns the facility’s capital needs to the beginning of the continuum – planning and funding.
