CIP

A list of 47 building and maintenance projects to be paid for over the next ten years is on a special Finance Committee agenda tonight for the Fairbanks North Star Borough Assembly. The list is a 10-year Capital Improvement Plan and includes parks, schools, ice rinks and pools. Tonight’s review will prepare the list for a public hearing later this month.

About 60 projects are on a long list of maintenance and repair needs the Fairbanks North Star Borough wants to address in the next ten years. A new comprehensive Capital Improvement Program, or KIP, is still shaping up. Last night the Borough Assembly finished the third phase, in a meeting continued from last week.

More than 50 people signed up to comment on the borough’s Capital Improvement Plan in a public hearing last Thursday, Jan. 16. The Fairbanks North Star Borough Assembly listened to more than three hours of public testimony to prioritize how maintenance and repair money should be spent, in a process that still has a long way to go. A lot of comments asked to preserve the sternwheeler in the Borough’s historical Pioneer Park.

Overhauling the way maintenance and repairs are done on taxpayer- funded buildings has been a goal of Fairbanks North Star Borough Mayor Bryce Ward. An estimated $200-$300 million worth of repairs are backlogged among borough and school district properties. A new procedure to come up with a 10-year capital improvement plan, or CIP, requires a lot more public input.
