This dynamic Master Planning framework embedded in GIS technology was brought to the Town through the Department of Local Affairs Mineral Impact Grant and Adams County Open Space. We receive $125,000 from DOLA to match with $125,000 cash contribution. Additionally, in spring 2018 the Town was awarded $40,000 from Adams County Open Space for parks, trails and open space master plan update. The combined efforts with DOLA, Adams County Open Space, and the Town form an overall Capital Asset Inventory & Master Plan (C.A.I.M.P). This GIS capital asset dashboard is designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage and present a variety of spatial and geographical data in one accessible location. This new system, especially when it comes to local government planning and monitoring, will be an essential part of asset management for the Town for years to come.
Early 2019 the Town staff, engineers, and consultants focused efforts on providing a complete review of all the Town’s assets covering utilities, roads, buildings, parks and planning cases. Through this process, a robust and thorough inventory was provided to paint a clear picture for planning for the future.
Land use and future developments were analyzed to show when and where the developments will occur along with the impacts on the Town’s infrastructure and facilities.
The C.A.I.M.P. project looks at the development in the Town of over a three, five and 10-year time span.
