The CIP process includes identifying, prioritizing and developing funding for projects programmed in the CIP. All projects included in the CIP are reviewed and updated annually, including project scope, cost estimates, anticipated schedules, and revenue projections. Major updates to the CIP are undertaken every five years, in coordination with the five-year major review of the General Plan, to both the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) for roadway projects in the Western Slope area of the County and the Traffic Impact Fee (TIF) Program.
The current CIP Book is posted on the County website at:

Major 5-Year Update
Major 5 Year Update - Background Information
On April 8, 2014, the Board selected a 20-year growth forecast and directed staff to issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the Major Five-Year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) and Traffic Impact Mitigation (TIM) Fee updates. The RFP was released on May 16, 2014 and Kittelson & Associates, Inc. (KAI) submitted a proposal on June 27, 2014. The KAI team provided a presentation to staff on July 10, 2014. The County selected KAI and its consultant team to assist in the major updates, as their proposal and presentation demonstrated a very strong team with local knowledge and historic perspective on the County programs as well as experience in the update of the TIM Fee programs of other jurisdictions. On September 30, 2014, the Board approved and authorized the Chair to sign Agreement for Services No. 214-S1511 with KAI to begin the Major Five-Year CIP and TIM Fee Program updates as required by General Plan Policy TC-Xb and Implementation Measures TC-A and TC-B. For this major update, and as part of the KAI contract, a dedicated project website was developed. On February 10, 2015, the Board approved the following project components: 1) project purpose and goals; 2) baseline assumptions; 3) four TIM Fee Zone Geography options presented are appropriate for further analysis; 4) approach to public outreach; and 5) project schedule. On March 26 – 27, 2015, staff and the consultant team held five (5) focus group meetings. The focus groups consist of representatives of the following categories: residents, land developers, economic development, and public agency/safety. Initially, four groups were planned for each category, but a second Resident group was added, due to the high number of interested constituents. On April 8, 2015, the first public workshop was held at Pleasant Grove Middle School in Rescue from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM. Supervisor Frentzen was in attendance at this meeting. On April 9, 2015, another public workshop was held at the El Dorado County Office of Education in Placerville from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM. The information presented was identical to that presented the previous evening. On May 5, 2015, the Board received information relating to the traffic analysis methodology, preliminary existing and future deficiency analysis results, alternative funding, and a summary of the initial public outreach and focus groups. In addition, the Board took the following actions relating to the project: confirmed that the four (4) TIM Fee Zone Geography options presented are appropriate for further analysis; provided input on the land use categories; and directed staff to proceed with the 2035 General Plan Land Use Scenario for the purposes of creating a draft CIP list and preliminary TIM Fee structure
On September 22, 2015, the Board received and filed draft information relating to the Major CIP and TIM Fee Program Updates including: proposed 2035 TIM Fee project list and project component assumptions; draft TIM Fee structure; and proposed CEQA environmental document for the TIM Fee Program.
On October 13, 2015, staff presented the Board with three alternatives to address concern that applicants would wait for the new projected lower TIM fee schedule to be adopted and implemented. The Board directed staff to proceed with Alternative 2: Implement a refund program for non-residential development applicants only that are subject to TIM fees. This option would be applicable for all building permits subject to TIM fees that are issued after December 15, 2015. Applicants would pay the current applicable TIM fee(s) at the time of building permit issuance, and payment of said TIM fees will be deemed as the applicant filling a claim for refund. Upon adoption and implementation of the new TIM fee schedule, the applicant would be entitled to a refund of the difference between the amount paid under the old (current) fee structure and the new fee structure (subject to certain requirements being met).
On October 27, 2015, the Board approved Amendment II to Agreement for Services 214-S1511 with Kittelson and Associates, Inc. to allow the use of project contingency and direct expense funding by the project consultant’s sub-consultants, with the required written approval by the County’s Contract Administrator, to assist in the completion of tasks for the Major Five-Year CIP and TIM Fee Program updates.
