Town Beautification & Promotion Program
The Board of Selectmen place economic growth and redevelopment as a top priority. As part of that goal, the Town Beautification and Promotion Revolving account was created, supported by the Board of Selectmen and established by Town Meeting vote on April 1, 2013. The purpose of the account is to use funds generated by promotional programs towards beatification projects on town property which demonstrate the values and goals of the community. This policy details step by step procedures how those funds, approved annually through town meeting vote, may be expended towards proposed beautification projects proposed by either public or private entities, organizations or individuals.
Traffic Signal Box Art Program
The Revenue Team's Traffic Signal Box Art Program literally provides a blank canvas in which the Town is able to support local artists, promotes the Town as a brand and visually enhances multiple areas within the Town. This project assists the Board of Selectmen and the Revenue Team's economic redevelopment goals while supporting local artists and enhances the vitality and attractiveness of the streetscape. Below is a map of the locations of each traffic signal box:
