Accept the Five-Year Capital Improvement Plan for the period Fiscal Year 2023-2024 through Fiscal Year 2027-2028



Executive Summary:

The Fiscal Year 2023-2024 through Fiscal Year 2027-2028 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 2023-2028 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. General Fund annual contribution allocations for FY 2023-24 were included in the adopted budget and are listed in Attachment 1.


The Plan (Attachment 2) is a compilation of separate capital improvement plans prepared by Public Infrastructure, Regional Parks, 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 2023-24 Budget Hearings concluded on June 16, 2023.



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 combination of federal, state, and local 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: Public Infrastructure issued a memo to all departments and Sonoma Water to review the process and timeline for the Plan. The Plan presented today was modified to prioritize projects based on general operational needs and improve public safety, preserve County assets, and they are ranked according to the following criteria:


1.                     Projects related to roof replacement &/or Emergency type projects 

2.                     Projects related to HVAC replacement 

3.                     Projects related to interiors improvements

Project requests are subsequently reviewed by the County Administrator’s Office for inclusion in the budget process.
