Capital Improvement Survey 401

Help Shape the Future of Portage 

During the month of September, 2021 the City of Portage will launch the annual update of the ten-year Capital Improvement Program (CIP), a financing plan that identifies both short- and long-range physical development and capital investments.   This is your opportunity to help shape the future of the city.  We are seeking public input regarding existing projects contained in the current CIP, as well as ideas for new projects.  Examples of CIP projects include: 

  • Major and local street reconstruction, including non-motorized transportation;
  • Municipal water, sanitary sewer and storm drainage facility improvements;
  • Park, bikeway and multi-use trail improvements;
  • Improvements to public facilities such as City Hall and the Public Services building, as well as technology enhancements; and upgrades to public safety facilities, vehicles and equipment.

A community driven CIP helps ensure that decisions made about capital investments are guided by the community.  To garner public input, an online survey is available during the month of September 2021.  Submit ideas for capital improvement projects and/or provide feedback on projects already in the planning stages.  Visit to learn more about the CIP and complete the survey. For more information, contact the Department of Community Development at 329-4477.


The Capital Improvement Program is an important implementation tool for various City of Portage planning efforts.

  • The Comprehensive Plan, which addresses long term goals and needs pertaining to land use, the transportation network, recreation and open space, natural/cultural resources, economy and market place, utility infrastructure and community facilities.
  • Strategic plan studies such as the Wellhead Protection Plan, Water Reliability Study, Storm Water Design Criteria Manual.
  • Periodic municipal facility audits; annual reports like utility operation and maintenance reports, annual traffic counts and signal studies; and citizen surveys.
