Hampton Beach Potential Transportation Improvements
June 11 Public Meeting Set To Receive Input

Hampton Beach area residents, businesses, and visitors will have the opportunity to comment on potential transportation improvements in the beach area at a public meeting set for Thursday, June 11, 2015. The 6:00 pm meeting will be held at the Hampton Town Office (100 Winnacunnet Road) in the Select Board meeting room.

The public meeting, which is part of the effort to update the transportation sections of the Hampton Beach Area Master Plan, will feature a presentation regarding the recent existing conditions assessment completed on current transportation options in the beach area. The project is being managed by the New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) on behalf of the Hampton Beach Area Commission (HBAC). It is being funded through a federal Transportation, Community & System Preservation (TCSP) grant from the Federal Highway Administration.

"We have a unique opportunity before us" stated HBAC Chair John Nyhan. "An opportunity to involve the Hampton public in a constructive discussion about the future of this great resource we have here on the ocean. Now is the time to talk about what will work best for all parties regarding transportation in the beach area."

"This project is intended to identify common-sense solutions that enjoy strong community support," said NHDOT Senior Planner William Rose. "Once those options are identified, the next phase would be to advance those supported transportation improvements as far through engineering design as the available funds will allow."

Interested citizens can follow this effort at the following on-line locations:
