Capital Projects for the City
Capital Improvement Plan: Investing in the City
The Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) is a list of priority projects showing the estimated costs and source of revenue and funding for selected projects over a six year period. With the development of the Biennial Budget, the City evaluates new and previously approved projects using criteria adopted by the City Council and incorporated into the City's Comprehensive Plan. Each project is scored for each evaluation criteria on a scale of one to three. The total score provides a way to objectively rank proposed projects. After evaluating projects against the criteria, the City estimates the revenue stream over the six-year period. Projects on the list are presented as the City's top priority projects for funding with anticipated six-year revenues.
When the CIP process begins, the City accepts comments on proposed projects for the Preliminary CIP. The City Council adopts the final CIP by July 1st of each year as required by the State Growth Management Act (GMA).
The CIP process provides several opportunities for citizens to propose new projects and/or comment on proposed projects. The CIP is presented to the Planning Commission and City Council. In addition, the City hosts an annual CIP Open House typically held in May. To get involved, contact the Public Works Department at 425.489.2700.

Improvement Plan adopted by the City
Draft Downtown Streetscape Master Plan and Wayfinding/Gateway Sign Plan
The City is seeking your comments on two plans that would enhance the look and feel of Woodinville.
The Downtown Streetscape Master Plan will implement new design standards to compliment new development regulations passed by the City Council in late 2010. The Plan identifies different street types and accompanying amenities in downtown Woodinville, like benches, street lights, and landscaping, to create visual appeal and provide for vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian circulation appropriate to downtown development. When development occurs, the plan would help transform downtown Woodinville into a walkable place with a unique look and feel.
The Wayfinding Sign Plan will establish a consistent Woodinville identity by using a family of different signs at major entryways to the city and throughout the city to guide visitors and residents to Woodinville's various "districts," such as downtown and the Tourism District.
