Capital focuses on the development and financing of new capital projects, which include new assets, repairs and replacement of existing capital assets. A capital project is a long-term, capital-intensive investment project, with the purpose of building a new asset or adding to and improving an existing asset. Capital projects are defined by their large scale and high cost relative to other investments. Currently those types of projects include the Water Treatment Plant and Distribution System project, the Commercial Development, School/Early Learning Centre, new Subdivision project and road improvements.
