Capital Improvements Section

Project Overview

The Capital Improvements Section serves to update the Capital Improvements Element of the Unincorporated Hillsborough County Comprehensive Plan. The Capital Improvements Section provides a framework on utilizing the County’s Comprehensive Plan and other adopted plans as guides for development and implementation of capital projects. 

The Section provides guidance on evaluating the need for public facilities as identified in other sections of the Comprehensive Plan. The Section shows how infrastructure needs identified in other sections of the Comprehensive Plan will be funded. Additionally, the Section contains the Schedule of Projects, a list of the various improvement projects for public infrastructure that are scheduled in the next five years and serve a Level of Service. The section supports the Future Land Use Element, providing guidance regarding infrastructure and capital planning by outlining the revenue and expenditure requirements of growth decisions. The language was developed via a cooperative effort with staff from across Hillsborough County government.
