City Seeks Citizen Input for Capital Improvement Projects


The city updates its five-year capital improvement program (CIP) every year. An important part of this annual process includes gathering ideas for projects from Creve Coeur residents.

Capital improvements include projects such as the construction of sidewalks, installation of park amenities, street resurfacing, and improvements to the stormwater system. Funding for capital projects comes from the city’s half-cent capital improvement sales tax, grants, and transfers from the general fund. The capital budget for this fiscal year is approximately $3.4 million.

The Planning and Zoning Commission is expected to be presented with a draft CIP in late February/early March 2018 and will make a recommendation to the City Council. The City Council will then hold work sessions to review the proposed CIP update.

A public hearing will be advertised and held by the City Council before final adoption. If you would like the city to consider a project, please submit your ideas by January 8, 2018, to sstott@crevecoeurmo.gov or write to: Sharon Stott, Assistant City Administrator, c/o CIP Ideas, City of Creve Coeur, 300 N. New Ballas Rd., Creve Coeur, MO 63141.

The CIP process includes:

  • Input from residents, elected and appointed officials and city staff
  • Preparation of draft CIP by city staff
  • Recommendation of CIP plan by the Planning & Zoning Commission and the Finance Committee
  • Public hearing of CIP
  • Adoption by the City Council
