HCPC Provides an array of public administration and data services to towns in Hancock
Public Administration and Data Resource Services
Programs at HCPC:
Our library includes population, employment, housing, traffic and land
use data. The agency is a U.S. Census affiliate Data Center, which means
that we receive many official demographic reports. We also manage geographic
information including Census TIGER files, enabling us to produce customized
maps and geographic analyses.
The HCPC hosts geographic information technology, including current
high resolution color aerial photographs, transportation routes, environmentally
sensitive locations, property maps and more. We provide technical assistance
to towns seeking to improve emergency response capacity, including identifying
resources, preparing proposals and plans.
The HCPC assists towns in identifying current trends in health and related
social economic issues as well as setting goals for future health programs.
Our office is assisting the Hancock
County Coalition for Community Health in community and school
based health initiatives.
We coordinate the joint purchasing of road salt, asphalt, and other materials
and services for towns. Our office has also consulted with towns on joint purchasing
of electricity and joint hiring of code enforcement officers.
