SUBJECT
Title
Public Hearing: Review of the Proposed FY 2020/21 and FY 2021/22 Biennial Capital Improvement Program Budget for Conformity with the City of Santa Clara 2010-2035 General Plan. Continued from May 27, 2020 Planning Commission Meeting.

Report
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
In accordance with State law and City procedures, the Planning Commission is charged with reviewing the proposed Capital Improvement Program (CIP) Budget (Pursuant to Government Code Section 65401) to determine its consistency with the adopted 2010-2035 General Plan. The City Council reviews the Planning Commission's findings prior to taking action on the budget. The proposed budget was presented at a City Council Study Session on May 12, 2020 and is scheduled for a second Study Session on June 9, 2020. The proposed budget will be brought forward for final approval on June 23, 2020. Although the draft CIP Budget may change somewhat before the City Council's study session and public hearings, those changes are expected to be relatively minor and generally in line with what is currently contained in this draft document. If necessary, any significant additions can be subsequently brought before the Commission.

BACKGROUND
The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is a five-year expenditure plan that guides the City in the planning, scheduling and budgeting of capital investments for its infrastructure and facility needs.

These Budget Principles provide a framework for budget review and development; ensuring fiscal stability by considering both the short and long-term impacts of any funding decisions.
