The Office of Capital Projects is a division of the Department of Public Works and Capital Projects.
The office oversees the implementation of the Town's Capital Improvements Program (CIP). The CIP is a six-year guide for the maintenance and expansion of the Town's fixed asset infrastructure - facilities, parks, streets, sidewalks and trails. A capital project is defined as a construction, renovation, or demolition project, or acquisition of land or other assets, valued at greater than $60,000 and with a useful life span of more than five years. Also included in the CIP is the Capital Asset Replacement Program (CARP) which includes planned, non-recurring renovations, replacements, or repairs of assets valued at $5,000 or more and a useful life of two years or more.
Capital Projects staff manages the projects in the Town's CIP, from scoping to bidding and contract award, through design, construction, inspection, and acceptance into the Town's inventory.
