The Hooksett Capital Improvements Program (CIP) is a valuable part of the community planning process. The CIP links local infrastructure investments with master plan goals, land use ordinances, and economic development efforts. The CIP bridges the gap between planning and spending, between the visions of the master plan and the fiscal realities of improving and expanding community facilities. The Hooksett CIP Committee is charged with investagating these goals and developing a cohesive, orderly plan to enact these efforts.
The Hooksett CIP defines a capital improvements project or program as a major, not-often-recurring, expenditure that costs or commits at least $50,000 before any external funding, which has an expected life of at least five (5) years.
