The Town of Nantucket is confronted with the issue of maintaining and improving its municipal facilities in the face of growing demands, limited budgets, and a lack of centralized information. Per request of the Assistant Town Manager and Town Facilities Manager, we completed a baseline facilities assessment and compiled the information into a database. This entailed conducting site visits, stakeholder interviews, and community-wide surveys. We discovered that many facilities were not efficiently fulfilling their intended purposes, and thus we recommended structural repairs, the consolidation and relocation of several departments, and the continued use and development of the database to improve facility maintenance and management.
