Mission of the Capital Project Review Committee

-         Keep projects on task and on time.

-         Improve communication across all departments.

-         Help rank projects by risk adjusted priority.

-         Review individual plans to minimize change orders, delays, resident inconvenience and unforeseen circumstances.

The capital construction project cycle starts with the planning process. A project budget is developed based on a concept work plan.  Design work begins either via consultant or in-house staff, as appropriate, involving public input prior to conclusion.  Once design and cost estimates are complete, the bid specifications are combined into contract documents, and appropriations of funding are requested.  If appropriations are approved via two public meetings, the project is advertised and bid in accordance with local public contracts laws.  If a responsible bidder is identified and and a contract award can be made, a public resolution is adopted and contracts are signed.  After performance bonds, affirmative action, work schedule and other public forms are received and a pre-construction meeting is attended, work may begin.
