Capital Improvement Program

The Capital Improvement Program is the primary mechanism by which the Ohio Department of Natural Resources develops, rehabilitates, improves, and expands its lands, facilities, and associated physical resources, to meet the needs of both its operating Divisions and the general public who use and enjoy them. Under the authorities granted in Chapter 1501 of the Ohio Revised Code, the ODNR is authorized to enter into contracts with professional consulting firms for planning, design, and construction administration observation on capital improvement projects. This same authority also authorizes the ODNR to competitively bid, execute, and administer construction contracts for these projects.
