The Engineering Department currently uses its Geographic Information System (GIS) primarily to track the condition of the Town roads and to inform residents of road jurisdictions.
In an effort to improve efficiency and transparency, we are giving residents access to some features of the GIS system. New features will be unveiled as we develop them for the public.
Today, you can use the map to:
- Learn who the Council Member is in an area by clicking anywhere within the Town.
- View the boundaries of the Town, Villages, and Hamlets by zooming in on an area.
- Learn who owns a road and who is responsible for it by zooming all the way in on an area.
