What is a Capital Infrastructure Plan and Why does Los Angeles Need one?

The City of LA gets roughly $1 billion each year for public works and transportation (primarily through the local return of four countywide transportation sales taxes), and even more from state and federal funds.

Where does all that money go? No one knows.

In 2017,  FUSE Fellow Laila Alequresh identified the lack of a Capital Infrastructure Plan (CIP) as a leading problem in Los Angeles’ management of public space. She said Los Angeles is the only major city in the United States without a CIP.

But it’s 2022, and there’s still no plan.

It’s time to change that and create a CIP for the City of Los Angeles.
