CIP stands for Community Investment Program and Kingsport has released the CIP for 2010-2014.
A CIP is strategic in funding projects that advance the economic
outlook of the community, ensure a well-educated workforce and provide
for the overall quality of life in the community.
Our CIP projects are multi-generational in usage, projects that will
be used by many and paid for over time in part by all users.
A CIP should keep the overall tax rate low by being constrained in
outlook, recognizing the economic climate of the time, with dollars
spent wherever possible to ensure a growing local tax base, avoiding
any pressure on property tax rates.
