Project Approvals and Requests

Capital Improvement

If a project's total budget is less than $3.5 million, or if the project is less than $500,000 of new space, or if it's an infrastructure upgrade with a budget of less than $7.5M, it's an improvement project. Any roofing, paving, hazmat, remodel, or even a new project that meets these criteria falls into this category. Work includes civil, utility, parks, courts, jails, armories, schools, general, mechanical, and electrical.


Capital Development

Conversely, if a project's total budget exceeds $3.5 million, or if it adds more than $500,000 in new space, or if it's an infrastructure project with a budget greater than $7.5M, it's a capital development project. Most remodels and new construction projects fall into this category and include schools, courthouses, prisons, health clinics, office buildings, laboratories, research facilities, and parks.
