The Public Works Department is responsible for Capital Improvements Projects. The Capital Improvement Projects are the best efforts of the Town's citizens, Town Council, Staff, and Planning Commission to identify and recommend major construction projects for the Town. Many of the projects have come from previous engineering and staff reports and some come from citizen or councilperson complaints. The reports and complaints are addressed in a manner that fulfills the goals of the Town's Comprehensive Plan.

The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is designed to allow the Town to do projects that are beyond the scope of routine maintenance and operation. These projects are ones that have a significant impact on the community, but are often too expensive to be funded in a single year budget. These projects allow the Town to plan for the future, by allowing time to see how capital projects will relate to other projects.

The CIP is reviewed annually at which time the schedule and the projects are reevaluated, new or deferred projects are added, and the timeframe is extended if necessary.

Some recently completed CIP projects include: 

  •      Public Safety Building Solar Conversion Project
  •      Falmouth/Shirley Roundabout
  •      Public Works Shop and Yard Improvements
  •      Sidewalk Construction
