Capital Planning Process
The Board received a report from IBM about the County’s Capital Planning process. IBM spent three weeks in 2010 studying the issue and has determined that decisions about which public buildings to construct or purchase should be decided after discussion with all local government entities. IBM’s report indicates that input from the City of Charlotte, the County towns, CMS, Library and CPCC will help the Board of County Commissioners make better Capital building decisions. The Board conducted a day-long retreat in October on this same issue and gave preliminary approval to a matrix for making building decisions. The Boards also discussed the issue at its Strategic Planning Conference last week. Final decisions will be made during the FY12 budget process.
