Keene-Swanzey Public Official/Public Informational Meeting
NHDOT to Discuss Potential Floodplain Mitigation Sites

Arrangements have been made by the New Hampshire Department of Transportation to hold a Public Informational Meeting to introduce a project that will identify appropriate floodplain mitigation site(s) within the Ashuelot River watershed for 19.9 acre-feet of compensatory floodplain storage. This is mitigation for impacts caused during the series of 10309 projects that made improvements to Routes 9, 10, 12 & 101. The history of the project and the process for selection of sites will be presented. The possible need to form a technical review committee for review of site alternatives will also be discussed.

The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, January 21, 2020, at 6:00 pm, at the Michael E. Blastos Building, 380 Marlborough Street, Keene, NH.

The purpose of this meeting is to present citizens and public officials with information regarding the proposed project and to solicit public input to ensure that project decisions meet public transportation needs and community goals, and protect and enhance the environment. Accordingly, NHDOT assures that this project will be administered per the requirements of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and all related statutes to ensure nondiscrimination.
