One of DPIC's top priorities is to improve the maintenance of Downtown. The Selectman's Town Maintenance Committee recently completed a Downtown Maintenance Study. The goal of the study was to clarify how maintenance is currently handled in town and how it may be improved upon. The study included a summation of annual maintenance costs, a breakdown of which department was responsible for which tasks, and a rough estimate of how much it would cost to outsource. A working group within DPIC is discussing how to improve upon existing systems, the possible creation of a downtown maintenance entity to coordinate all related tasks, and brainstorming cost-effective long term solutions.
