​​​Capital Improvement Program

Link to Capital Improvement Plan Interactive ReportMecklenburg County is a growing and thriving community. With a population of more than one million people and rising, there is increasing demand for schools, parks and public services. The County will invest approximately $1.57 billion to fund these improvements through our FY2019-FY2023, 5-year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). The funding for these projects comes from two basic sources: borrowing through the issuance of General Obligation Bonds (59%), and direct 
funding (41%).

To better explain what investments are planned in the County for Fiscal Years 2019-2023, we have created an interactive website to help report on what projects are scheduled and where they’re happening.

Pie chart showing what percentage of total funding is allocated to each of the 5 plan sections: 11% to Government Facilities, 59% to CMS, 17% to Park & Recreation, 4% to Library and 9% to CPCC.The CIP funds a range of projects including creating new community resource centers, updating county facilities, and expanding our park and greenway system. Additionally, the County has the responsibility of funding capital projects for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS), Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Library. The plan is updated annually and provides a comprehensive approach to capital planning. The funds in the CIP are for construction and associated information technology, and do not include operating expenses after the completion of the project.

The Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) approved the CIP in June 2017, with adjustments
adopted over the past year. The FY2019-FY2023 CIP currently includes a total of 74 capital projects. These projects are classified into five categories: Government Facilities, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS), Park & Recreation, Library & Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC).
