The Planning Commission is launching the annual update of the Township’s Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). As always, the first step in the process is the call for projects.
The approach to this process is to solicit proposals through an open call for projects. It is the expectation that the proposals received will identify long-range investment priorities throughout the six-year planning period. When submitting CIP proposals, the Planning Commission recommends identifying these investments as early as practical in order to distribute the anticipated financial commitment over the six-year outlook of the CIP. The Planning Commission requests that each Capital Project request to be referenced in one of Bath Township’s formally-adopted plans and priority may be given to requests that come from adopted plans.
For organizations and individuals not affiliated with Bath Township seeking to submit a project for CIP consideration, a proposal should be submitted through an appropriate Township entity to be considered for inclusion in their planning documents. All projects submitted in this manner will be held to the same expectations for project completeness.
Finally, the Planning Commission has modified its CIP schedule to provide additional time to review projects. If you want to discuss your project with Staff, appointments may be made throughout the submission window, which will open on Wednesday, February 13th and end on Wednesday, March 20th. To schedule an appointment to discuss project proposals with the Planning Department, please contact Brian Shorkey by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 517-641-5166.
