The Town uses a detailed comprehensive street assessment completed with the assistance of an engineering firm. Each street within the Town was thoroughly assessed and given a pavement condition rating (PCR). Each year, the Town staff recommends to the Board of Commissioners which street or streets should be resurfaced, based in large part on the PCR score of the street(s) and other factors. The decision is then made by the Board.
