Having adequate public infrastructure is important to the effective and efficient delivery of services to the public. The acquisition, construction, expansion, maintenance, rehabilitation and upgrading of infrastructure results in a major demand on the financial resources of any government that must be planned for in advance and must be comprehensive.

For these reasons, Virginia Beach annually develops a six-year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) to define needs, set priorities, plan funding and anticipate impacts of proposed capital projects on the operating budget of the government.
