What are the goals of the NIP program?
Preserve and enhance residential neighborhoods through intensified, proactive code enforcement and neighborhood outreach Work with residents to gain voluntary compliance and provide assistance and resources as available to facilitate compliance Foster a greater awareness of Town Codes and appreciation for neighborhood improvement in a manner that promotes collaboration and cooperation between Town staff and Town residents.
