Capital Improvement Program (CIP)

Recurring capital funding from (Parks Tax, General Fund, Marina Funds, Camps Fund) is used to address our most critical unfunded needs and allows selected projects in our City parks to be accomplished annually.

These funds along with Measure WW and other grants sources, provides funding for the restoration and improvements of parks and recreation facilities.  These improvements include safety and accessibility; replacing deteriorated play equipment; repairing or replacing site furnishings; improvements to existing playing fields for increased youth sports opportunities and basic infrastructure improvements including rehabilitation of sports courts, lighting, eroding walkways and irrigation renovations.   

Capital/Major Maintenance Project FY15-17    

The PRW Project Summary provides an update on currently funded parks capital improvement and major maintenance projects. The Capital Improvements Budget Report explains the department funding sources, FY 16-FY19 projects and the impact of the passage of Measure F in November 2014. With the passage of Measure F, voters approved $1.7M in additional parks funding, starting in FY16. Of this amount, $750,000 per year was allocated to major maintenance projects, $450,000 to minor maintenance projects, and $500,000 to close the structural deficit. This raised annual funding for parks capital and major maintenance projects from the prior $650,000 to $1.4M.   


Unfunded Capital Projects 

As of September 2016, the Parks, Recreation & Waterfront Department estimates that the parks system has between $83M and $165M in Unfunded Capital and Major Maintenance Needs, these are much needed repairs and upgrades in order to meet current safety and accessibility standards.
