Capital Improvement Plan


A Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) is a tool to document and assess long-term capital project requirements and to prioritize and establish funding of these projects in a timely and cost-effective fashion. Barrington’s 2021-2025 CIP (full document available here) covers several categories of improvements, including facility and property improvements, pedestrian and bikeway projects, street improvements, parking improvements, stormwater management improvements, water main & water facility/ system improvements, sanitary sewer & wastewater facility/system improvements, and vehicles & equipment.  The CIP is utilized to prioritize capital project funding allocations as part of the Village's annual budgeting process.  As not all projects will be allocated funding in their originally assigned year, the CIP will be iteratively updated to remove completed projects, prioritize deferred projects, and include new proposed capital improvements.  An overview of the entire CIP, is available here.
