Force Permissions By Directory

Is there a way to force file permissions by directory (and subdirectories
under it)?

For example, the user’s default umask value is 022 but I want it to be 002 in
certain directories.

    /usr/bin/find /some/dir -xdev ! -perm -g+r -print -exec chmod g+r \{\} +

    /usr/bin/find /some/dir -xdev -type d ! -perm -g+x -print -exec chmod
    g+x \{\} +
