Town of New Hampton Hazard Mitigation Plan Meeting

NEW HAMPTON — The New Hampton Hazard Mitigation Plan Committee will meet on Friday, May 16, at the New Hampton Public Safety Building, 26 Intervale Drive, starting at 10 a.m. Residents and business owners of New Hampton and representatives from neighboring communities are encouraged to attend and offer comment and ideas.

The Mitigation Plan Committee is in the process of updating is 2009 Hazard Mitigation Plan. The committee, which is represented by a variety of local interests, has reviewed the natural and man-made hazards that put New Hampton at risk, evaluating its capabilities, and is developing recommendations to protect the safety and well

being of town residents.
Hazard Mitigation Planning is as important to reducing disaster losses as are appropriate regulations and land use ordinances. The most significant areas of concern for New Hampton are being determined through this process. With the update to the Hazard Mitigation Plan, community leaders will be able to prioritize actions to reduce the impacts of these and other hazards. Community leaders want the town to be a disaster resistant community and believe that updating the Hazard Mitigation Plan will bring New Hampton one step closer to that goal.

For more information please call Chief Michael Drake, New Hampton Fire Chief and Emergency Management Director at 744-2735 or David Jeffers, regional planner for the Lakes Region Planning Commission at 279-8171.

Walk on Saturday to raise funds for Meals on Wheels program

LACONIA — The Community Action Program Belknap-Merrimack Counties Inc. (BM-CAP) will hold its annual March for Meals walk-a-thon on Saturday, May 17 at 9:30 a.m. The walk will raise funds and awareness for the Meals on Wheels program.

In the past years the walk took place only in Concord, however this year BM-CAP has announced a second walk on the WOW Trail in Laconia. The 2.6 WOW Trail walk begins at Lakes Region Community Services at 719 North Main Street.

Meals on Wheels is a critical program which provides up to five hot, home-delivered meals a week and a daily wellness check to home-bound and a disabled adults. In 2013, BM-CAP served an amazing 250,000 meals to more than 1,400 people; amounting to 30,000 meals over their state contract. Government funding does not cover the cost of each meal so local fundraisers such as March for Meals are essential to meet that need.

To make a donation or for more information call the CAPBMCI Elder Services Department at 225-3295.
