Warrant Article 32

Thank you for supporting Article 32.

The CCC submitted a warrant article for your consideration in the March elections. The article read as follows:

Article 32

To see if the Town will vote to authorize the Selectmen to transfer the responsibility for and the management of the following town-owned properties to the Candia Conservation Commission.

  • 1. New Boston Road (Map 406-100-1) 18 acres North of the North Branch River, abutting the existing 82 acre Deerfield Road Town Forest (Map 401-001-001)
  • 2. New Boston Road (Map 406-103-1) 20 acres North of the North Branch River, abutting the existing 82 acre Deerfield Road Town Forest (Map 401-001-001)

Further, to designate these properties, in accordance with RSA 31:110, as a part of the Candia Town Forest System. This action would be of no cost to Candia tax payers.

The two parcels of land abut the southern edge of the Deerfield Road Town Forest and lie across the river from the northern edge of the old New Boston Road Recycling Center. The parcels are predominately land locked wetlands. Placing them under the supervision of the Conservation Commission will assist in the protection of the headwaters of the North Branch of the Lamprey River. It would be beneficial to add them to the Deerfield Road Town Forest and we would be able to do this without incurring any associated costs. The warrant article itself will not cost the tax payers any money. The additional acreage could allow us to expand our trail network from the Deerfield Road Town Forest parcel.

Thank you for voting YES on Article 32!
