2019 PUBLIC FORUM SCHEDULE
79-A:1 Declaration of Public Interest. – It is hereby declared to be in the public interest to encourage the preservation of open space, thus providing a healthful and attractive outdoor environment for work and recreation of the state’s citizens, maintaining the character of the state’s landscape, and conserving the land, water, forest, agricultural and wildlife resources. It is further declared to be in the public interest to prevent the loss of open space due to property taxation at values incompatible with open space usage. Open space land imposes few if any costs on local government and is therefore an economic benefit to its citizens. The means for encouraging preservation of open space authorized by this chapter is the assessment of land value for property taxation on the basis of current use. It is the intent of this chapter to encourage but not to require management practices on open space lands under current use assessment.

November 21, 2019 1:00pm to 2:30pm
Location: Hill Town Selectmen Office
The Town of Hill, with the local Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee, is working to update Hill’s Hazard Mitigation Plan. The Plan identifies potential natural and man-made hazards throughout the town and various projects and/or strategies to mitigate their effects. The President signed into law, the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA). The Act requires all local governments to prepare and adopt jurisdiction-wide hazard mitigation plans as a condition of receiving Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) and Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) project grants.
All residents, neighboring communities, businesses, and interested parties are formally invited to participate in the plan update process.
For more information, please contact Chief Ford at: 603-630-5795 or 603-934-1094
