The plan addresses both repair and replacement of existing infrastructure as well as the development or acquisition of new facilities, property, improvements and major equipment to accommodate future growth. As a planning tool, it enables the City to identify needed capital projects and coordinate facility financing, construction, operation and the timing thereof. By providing on time, quality and cost-effective improvement projects for the city’s infrastructure while maintaining and optimizing use of the existing infrastructure, the City’s capital improvement program is a catalyst for fostering economic growth & development for the City of Round Rock.

The City of Round Rock views its planning and operations in a strategic manner. Needs are identified through citizen and customer surveys, research into technological innovation, demographic trend analysis and observation of other factors affecting the community.
As the City of Round Rock looks to the future, City leaders and staff envision a community that has planned for growth and development and provides its citizens with the quality services and programs. Capital improvement projects are a major component in planning for the future of the City. Capital improvements are major construction projects or improvements to the City’s infrastructure and have a long useful life. Typically, the improvements are funded with borrowed funds (bonds, certificates of obligation and capital leases), transfers from operating funds and, in the case of the utility system, capital recovery fees.
The backbone of any community comes from its infrastructure - - a City cannot sustain growth without adequate transportation and utility systems. This includes improving the long-term viability of the economy with future generations in mind. The City’s capital improvement program plays a major factor in how the City will function in the future as a sustainable community. Many of these improvement projects have a significant impact on the City's plans and operations to stimulate growth in the local economy.
