City Projects

What is the Capital Improvement Plan?

The Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) is the City of Washougal’s plan for large scale improvement projects for the City’s infrastructure -like fixing roads, water and wastewater systems using anticipated revenues and bonds.

Not all capital projects are funded due to limited budgets. Instead, the city allocates money to projects that are considered high priority or have available grant funding. Typically, the further out projects are scheduled beyond the current year, the less likely that immediate funding will be available for construction.
