Accept the Five-Year Capital Improvement Plan for the period Fiscal Year 2022-2023 through Fiscal Year 2026-2027.



Executive Summary:

The Fiscal Year 2022-2023 through Fiscal Year 2026-2027 Capital Improvement Plan (Plan) is presented in accordance with Sonoma County Code Section 2-8(l), pursuant to which, the County Administrator recommends to the Board of Supervisors a long-term capital project program including project priorities, costs, and methods of financing. Receipt by your Board of the 2022-2027 Plan does not authorize budgetary appropriations.


Funding decisions for the Capital Improvements Budget are made as part of the budget process for each participating agency. The overall Plan is a compilation of separate capital improvement plans prepared by General Services, Regional Parks, Transportation and Public Works, and Sonoma Water. Annually, the Plan is updated to reflect any scope and budgets revisions, and the Plan is then brought to the Board for acceptance. FY 2022-23 Budget Hearings are scheduled to begin on June 14, 2022.



The Capital Improvement Plan identifies the need for continued upstream investment strategies to both maintain County-owned property asset values and to address the deferred maintenance backlog. The County, as stewards of over one billion dollars in property replacement value, recognizes the need for sustainable progress on the deferred maintenance backlog.


The Plan contains descriptions of proposed Capital Projects, their estimated costs, and a narrative explaining the relationship to short-term needs and longer-term objectives. The Plan is a five-year planning document that indicates infrastructure improvement needs. Funding sources are suggested where potential funding has been identified for a project, however Board acceptance of the Plan does not fund projects. Final determination of project funding is made during the annual Capital Improvements Budget process.


A mix of different funding sources and strategies are needed to meet the needs across all County-owned infrastructure, including buildings, roads, and parks. Specific project funding may include maximizing state and federal funding opportunities, utilizing proceeds from the sale or lease of surplus County property assets, use of dedicated fund sources, bond issuances, use of third-party development and operations agreements, and/or use of the County General Fund.


Plan Development Process: Each fall General Services issues a memo to all departments and Sonoma Water to review the process and timeline for the Plan. The normal capital improvement process has been modified to reprioritize projects that advance the recovery and rebuilding of the community following the Glass Fires of 2020 while improving public safety and access to government services.


For General Government Capital Projects, Project Requests are submitted for inclusion in the Plan. Project Requests are prioritized and ranked according to the Administrative Policy 5-2: Policy for Capital Project and Asset Responsibility. Project requests are subsequently reviewed by the County Administrator’s Office for inclusion in the budget process.


Information on Capital Projects where funding has been appropriated is available to the public on the County’s website at: <>
