Perhaps you’ve seen the trench between the Town Hall parking lot and the Community Center. It is the beginning stages of a walkway to connect the two buildings on the Town Hall campus. Before any further work is done, electrical wiring connecting the two will be buried, then gravel will fill the trench until spring when pavers will be installed. The purpose of the wiring is to allow the generator purchased with STEAP grant funds to power both facilities in case of an emergency situation, and allow the Community Center to be used as a sleep center as well as an emergency kitchen.

At our last Selectmen’s meeting, it was agreed that Public Works would stripe the center of the new roadways on East and West Old Route 6 in the interest of public safety. This work should be completed before the snow flies.

Hampton is fortunate to receive a $22,750 grant through the Open Space and Watershed Land Acquisition program, administered by the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, for expanding the Edwards Preserve through the purchase of seven acres of land adjacent to the State forest on Old Town Pound Road. The original Preserve was purchased with a grant from this same program in 2013. The new parcel has more than 1,000 feet of road frontage and is adjacent on three sides to the existing Edwards Preserve. Acceptance of this grant would be contingent upon approval of the purchase at a yet-to-be-scheduled town meeting.

I would urge you to make your wishes known, as citizens and taxpayers of Hampton, by responding to the exit survey available at Town Hall on Election Day, November 3rd. This exit survey will be conducted in all three towns to help determine the future direction of education. Please remember to select only one of the three options: full regionalization, district dissolution, or the status quo; failure to do so will invalidate your voice in this survey.

Now is the time to prepare for colder weather – remember, in case of emergency, the Community Room at Town Hall will be available as a warming center.
