Proposed FY 2023 - FY 2032 Capital Improvement Plan


Arlington County Manager Mark Schwartz presented his proposed FY 2023–2032 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) to the Arlington County Board on May 17, 2022. The proposal outlines $3.9 billion in investments for stormwater management and flood response, climate and environmental programs, parks, transportation, community infrastructure and more over the next 10 years. The Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) is the County’s 10-year plan for building, maintaining, upgrading or replacing County facilities and infrastructure. This includes  parks, community centers, technology systems, water, sewer, stormwater and transportation infrastructure—and more. Accompanying the County Managers proposal is a news release and infographic that highlights the details and importance of the FY 2023 - FY 2032 CIP.

The FY 2023-2032 webpage has been designed to provide a more interactive and intuitive experience. You can click on "Complete Proposed CIP for FY 2023-2032" for the full document, or icons below for specific sections of the book

CIP Overview

As a result of our constrained and short-term CIPs there is significant pent-up demand for new infrastructure and maintenance of our existing infrastructure. You will see outlined below my recommendation for a $3.9 billion dollar CIP that provides a strategic approach for climate and environmental resiliency; responsiveness to evolving and emerging service demands from the community; honoring commitments from prior CIPs and making sure our infrastructure is in a state of good repair. It also reflects lessons learned from COVID in terms of how we provide services to the community and how our employees do their work.

CIP Engagement

CIP-Engagement-Inforgraphic.jpg Over 2,400 Arlington residents provided input on their top priority areas for major infrastructure investments from the CIP between February and March 2022, which helped inform key projects to include in the proposal. Through pop-up engagement events, online and paper forms, and voicemails the County Manager's Office compiled responses and developed a thorough analysis of community response.
