Tampa invests millions of dollars into a variety of construction projects every year. These capital improvement projects include updating our streets for improved mobility, improving our storm drains to expanding our capacity to provide clean drinking water and collecting wastewater. Capital improvement projects can also include investments to build or rehabilitate buildings such as fire and police stations and recreational facilities. These critical, long-term investments help support our economic vitality and promote livable neighborhoods.
These projects can be in any one of a variety of stages—planning, design, procurement, construction and closeout—and vary in length of time from several months to several years. Regardless of their size or scope, these types of projects provide a tangible example of how we are Transforming Tampa’s Tomorrow.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a capital improvement project?
Capital improvement projects (CIPs) are critical, long-term investments that help support Tampa’s economic vitality and promote livable neighborhoods. There are many different types of CIP projects and they range from projects designed to update our streets for improved mobility, to improving our storm drains, to expanding our capacity to provide clean drinking water and collecting wastewater. Capital improvement projects can also include investments to build or rehabilitate buildings such as fire and police stations and recreational facilities.
Some projects will require years of planning and construction while others can be completed within a matter of months.
CIPs do not include minor improvements to or regular maintenance of facilities and infrastructure. These needs are usually funded through the annual operating budget.
There are a few ways to find projects around you!
- You can filter projects by City Council District. This option appears in the blue, left-hand column. Information is available for Districts 4, 5, 6 and 7. (Districts 1-3 are citywide districts and as such are not assigned to CIP projects.)
- You can also filter projects by neighborhood. This option appears in the blue, left-hand column. (You might need to scroll to the bottom of the page.) Click on the down arrow to access the list of neighborhoods.
- The Map will show you any projects in your area that are in various stages (planning, design, procurement, construction or closeout) for the next several years. You can zoom in or out of an area using the plus (+) and minus (-) buttons located on the lower right-hand corner of the Map. Click and hold your mouse to pan around areas on the Map.
