2016 to 2023 Capital Improvements Program (CIP)
The Board has finished updating the Town’s CIP. Below is a link to the newly adopted version. Please note the CIP is intended as a financial planning tool and guide for Town Department Heads, the Board of Selectmen and the Budget Committee. The different projects and costs in the CIP can be amended, reprioritized, or even tabled at future public hearings. The objective now is to update the CIP annually at public hearings held every fall, just prior to “budget season.”
If you have questions about the CIP, please view the presentation on Channel 20, the presentation slides, or the Board’s meeting minutes at the links below. If you have any additional questions, please contact us at the email address above.
