The Capital Improvement Section plans, designs, and administers engineering contracts for City Capital Improvement Program (CIP) projects, including those that are State and Federally funded. Typical City CIP projects include street improvements, drainage improvements, sewer improvements, utility improvements, annual street maintenance programs, building improvements, and park and recreational facilities.
The Section provides assistance to other City departments in reviewing improvement plans for City facilities and the construction of new City facilities. Section staff also provides assistance to other City departments when time-sensitive engineering reviews are needed.
The Section administers construction contracts on City projects, as well as coordinates with other agencies (such as Caltrans, California Water Company, and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works) during construction of their projects. In addition, the Section is responsible for monitoring potential grant funding opportunities and for executing applications necessary to compete for the award of those funds to the City’s projects.
