"Building Better Neighborhoods"
Created in 2002, the Office of Capital Improvements is responsible for planning, coordinating, implementing, and monitoring all capital projects in the City of Miami. Capital projects are generally large-scale in terms of cost, size and benefit to the community. The underlying strategy of OCI is to designate resources for design and construction of new and renovation of existing public facilities and infrastructures necessary for the safe and efficient provision of services.
In partnership with private architects, engineering consultants and contractors, OCI manages all phases of design and construction for all horizontal and vertical projects, inclusive of environmental, shoreline stabilization, and waterfront properties.
Beginning with projects from the $255 million Homeland Defense & Neighborhood Improvement Bonds approved by the voters in 2001, the City's current Capital Improvements Program now encompasses over 878 projects (568 active and 310 future) valued at nearly $680,530,000 for the six-year period from 2016 to 2022
The Office of Capital Improvements (OCI) enhances the quality of life and economic growth through its Program Management of capital projects for the delivery of high-quality, state of the art resilient facilities and public infrastructure investment in its neighborhoods.
