The Facility Expansion and Site Masterplan addresses multiple issues so that employees may continue to safely and efficiently conduct the services that residents depend on every day.
In 2017, funding was approved by voters for improvements to the Public Services facility located at 36 Sea Road. The primary focus was on improved access to the site, traffic flow, and renovations to the Public Services garage, administrative space, and a vehicle wash bay. Additional, necessary improvements were identified and reviewed by a team led by Sebago Technics.
In September of 2019 the project team of Sebago Technics, Inc., Grant Hays Associates, and Allied Engineering, Inc. was selected.
Issues identified by the project team include:
The proposed plan includes a new Fleet Maintenance and Administration building that will address issues with the overcrowded facility. The Department of Public Services has outgrown the current facility and there is no room for organized storage. The plan will allow for more storage and maintenance bays, eliminate overcrowding and provide a safe, modern, facility that meets today's codes.
The Public Services Garage currently services over 85 vehicles out of two garage bays. These vehicles are used by and relied upon by Police and Fire-Rescue, Public Services, Parks & Recreation, and Codes & Assessing to conduct the daily operations that the Town provides to the community.

New Fleet Maintenance Building 90’x180’ (16,200 s.f.)
