Capital Improvements Advisory Committee
The Capital Improvement Plan Advisory Committee is responsible for the development of annual and long-term capital improvement plans for the Town of Milford.2012
A municipal capital improvements plan is an essential component of the Town’s short-term and long-range community planning process. As authorized by NH RSA 674:5 and by Article 25 of the 1995 Milford Town warrant, the Town of Milford annually prepares a six-year capital improvements plan (CIP) to lay out a program of municipal programs and projects that require a significant capital outlay. The CIP encompasses major projects currently underway, and/or future projects to be undertaken with public funds. Tailoring the CIP to the community allows projects to be classified according to urgency and the need to see them realized to support Town services. Included in the CIP analysis are estimated costs for each project, probable operating costs, eligibility for impact fee assessment, and anticipated funding sources. A project is deemed eligible for inclusion in the CIP if the total cost is a minimum of $75,000 and is reasonably expected to have a useful life of at least five (5) years. Replacement vehicles, although often acquired in groups, are not eligible unless the single unit value is equal to or greater than $75,000.
The Capital Improvements Plan (CIP) contains the capital improvement projects recommended by the Capital Improvements Plan Citizens’ Advisory Committee (Advisory Committee) based on review and analysis of project requests submitted by Town department heads, the Milford Conservation Commission, the Water and Sewer Commission, and the Milford School District. For the 2011-2016 CIP, project requests (both new and reoccurring) were submitted by the following: Ambulance Service; Administration; Community Development; Fire Department; Department of Public Works (DPW) – Highway; DPW-Solid Waste; Wadleigh Memorial Library; Water Utilities; Conservation Commission; and the School District.
