The County’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP) Evaluation and Oversight Committee held a public hearing Thursday in Council Chambers for those applicants who have indicated that they are ready to move from Phase 1 (Study) to Phase 2 (Design/Construction). The committee passed unanimously Phase 2 applications for both the Teen Center and the Nature Center for the Pajarito Environmental Education Center.
The CIP Committee’s recommendations for approval will be forwarded to County Administrator Harry Burgess. Burgess could then take action to send the projects to the County Council for its consideration and funding in the CIP budget.
The Council will consider the overall CIP as part of its budget hearings when it considers the new FY 13/14 budget.
