The District holds two annual budget related meetings in each of the District’s seven zones. The Budget Hearing provides an opportunity for private citizens and municipalities to voice their concerns and request projects. The District’s Zone Commissioners will review and consider all capital improvement requests for inclusion in next year’s fiscal budget. Such requests can be submitted in writing/electronically using the Capital Improvement Project Request Form (preferred), or verbally at the hearing. Project requests can be submitted at the Budget Hearing for each respective zone, although prior submission is preferred so that projects may be evaluated by District staff before presenting to the Zone Commissioners. Following the Hearing, the Budget Workshop will be held at the same location and will discuss the draft recommended budget for the next fiscal year.

Step 2: Check for Your Project in Current CIP
Click the appropriate links below to see if your project of interest is currently budgeted, for what amount, and the description associated with it.
Projects that are already budgeted must have a CIP Request Form submitted yearly to remain budgeted.
Step 3: Fill Out and Submit a Capital Improvement Project Request Form
The District’s goals are to fund projects that provide the most benefit for the community, and that leverage partnerships with other agencies. The Capital Improvement Project Request Form was created to help ensure that the District and the Zone Commissioners have enough information to fully evaluate each requested project. Our evaluation will consider factors such as available budget and partnerships for funding, severity of impacts, number of people that will benefit from the project, and the ability of the project to provide multiple benefits (such as water conservation, parks, trails, etc.). Therefore, please provide as much information as possible regarding the requested project and, if necessary, attach a separate sheet to the request.
