Capital Improvement Projects

The Ashland Public Works Department has adopted master plans for each specific division; Street, Storm, Water, Wastewater, Facilities, and Airport. These master plans not only detail operational maintenance requirements but also improvement projects driven by numerous system needs. Each plan is developed independently from the other and in general, projects were previously prioritized by system need without consideration for the whole infrastructure system. Public Works staff has worked on developing an improved system for prioritization of maintenance projects and CIP projects that accounts for all system needs. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) has documented project data from each adopted master plan and geolocated each specific project into a citywide database.
