Meredith Village Savings Bank supports Sculpture Walk

MEREDITH — Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB) is pleased to support the Greater Meredith Program's (GMP) Sculpture Walk with a $5000 contribution that will help maintain and update the display. 

As part of its mission to continue to beautify the Meredith community, the Greater Meredith Program began the Sculpture Walk project in the Fall of 2012. What began with just two sculptures displayed in the Courtyard on Main Street was expanded this year to a sculpture walk containing twenty-four unique works scattered throughout the downtown Meredith community. The artists participating were jury selected. Their pieces will be on display for up to 18 months and then be replaced on a rotating basis. A map and guide for the Meredith Sculpture Walk can be found on the Greater Meredith Program's website, www.greatermeredithprogram.com, as well as at various locations along the walk.

"We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of interest and support from artists and the community," said Elizabeth Lapham, Executive Director of the Greater Meredith Program. "It brings us so much pride to see residents and visitors pausing to admire the beauty of each of these pieces set against the backdrop of our wonderful downtown Meredith."

The Greater Meredith Program (GMP) is a non-profit community economic development organization dedicated to enhancing economic vitality, historical and cultural heritage, and town-wide beautification. For more information about the GMP and the Meredith Sculpture Walk or volunteer opportunities visit www.greatermeredithprogram.com or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Draft completed for Holdernesss Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

HOLDERNESS — The Holderness Hazard Mitigation Committee is pleased to announce completion of the DRAFT Town of Holderness Hazard Mitigation Plan Update, 2014.  The Plan will be available for review during a public comment period from August 21 – 28, 2014 on the town’s website (http://www.holderness-nh.org/), at the Holderness Town Hall, the and the town library.

The committee is represented by a variety of local interests including the Board of Selectmen, Town Administrator and Emergency Management Director, Fire Chief, Police Chief, Highway Road Agent, Planning Board, and Librarian. The Committee was assisted in this effort by staff from the Lakes Region Planning Commission. The Plan is designed to address Holderness’s vulnerability to natural and man-made hazards and will serve to reduce future residential and commercial property losses from hazardous events before they occur. The committee reviewed changes that have occurred in the last five years, including the status of mitigation actions that were recommended in the 2008 Plan.

Natural hazards likely to impact Holderness include flooding, high winds, severe winter weather, lightning strikes, earthquake, and wildfire. During development of the Plan, community leaders were able to identify and prioritize actions to reduce the impacts of these hazards. The Plan is also a useful tool for leveraging additional sources of funding prior to, or in the event of, a natural disaster.

All comments on the draft should be directed in writing to Emergency Management Director and Town Administrator at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
