City Improvement Program

The City Improvement Program helps the City of Greater Dandenong plan, program and manage the city's public assets including roads, drains, buildings, parks, open space, playgrounds, footpaths, and bike paths.

Once a year, the community is invited to submit capital works proposals that they consider will preserve and create community assets within the city.

The yearly City Improvement Program budget is determined during Council's annual budget process in July each year. The size of the City Improvement Program budget depends on Council's funding ability and other responsibilities. Once approved, projects are planned, designed and delivered.

To be eligible for the City Improvement Program, projects must:

  • be valued $5000 or more
  • be for Council-owned property (land, building and facility)
  • replace uneconomic or non-performing assets (equipment, facility, building)
  • create a new public asset (eg. road, community facility, and bike path)


If you have a proposal you would like considered download and complete the City Improvement Program application form (Word - 481KB). The form is quite detailed, so if you would like someone to step you through the application process, or if you have any questions about the City Improvement Program, contact Council.
