PSNH Grant Supports Northfield Project

NORTHFIELD — Northfield Economic Development Corporation is pleased to announce that his organization has been awarded a $2,500 Community Development Grant from Public Service of New Hampshire.

"One of our goals is to increase the profile of both the town and its businesses" said NEDC president Keith Murray. "We are grateful for PSNH's support of this endeavor."

He noted that grant will help provide funds for a message board on Rt. 132 that will be used to promote Northfield businesses and help defray cost of 'Welcome to Northfield' signs, which will be especially useful along the town's main business corridor, Rt. 140. "Because Northfield shares the 03276 zip code commercial developers and visitors do not always realize that when they cross the Winnipesaukee River they have entered a different town and a different county" said Murray, "Thanks to PSNH we will be able to address this problem."

"PSNH is pleased to be able to assist the Northfield Economic Development Corporation with promoting their community and enhancing economic development", said Donna Keeley, Community Relations Specialist.
