Approval of the CIP commits the County <br />to the first year funding only of the capital projects; all other years are used as a planning tool <br />and serves as a financial plan. <br /> <br />Capital Investment Plan – Overview <br />The FY 2020-25 CIP includes County Projects, School Projects, and Proprietary Projects. The <br />School Projects include Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools, Orange County Schools, and <br />Durham Technical Community College – Orange County Campus projects. The Proprietary <br />Projects include Water and Sewer, Solid Waste Enterprise Fund, and Sportsplex projects. <br /> <br />The CIP has been prepared anticipating moderate economic growth of approximately 2% in <br />property tax growth over the next five years, and 4% sales tax growth in Years 2-5. Sales Tax <br />proceeds for Year 1 (FY 2020-21) are estimated to decline by 4.5% due to the current <br />coronavirus pandemic. Many of the projects in the CIP will rely on debt financing to fund the <br />projects. <br /> <br />
