MEREDITH — The Greater Meredith Program, a community organization seeking to enhance economic vitality, historical and cultural heritage, and town-wide beautification, has announced that it will again offer a Façade & Site Improvement Program.

Its aim is to offer assistance to property owners and merchants striving to promote and preserve the greater Meredith community. The Greater Meredith Program Design Committee invites those who qualify to apply for design assistance up to a value of $3,000. An example of a previous GMP Façade Improvement can be seen on Phu Jee's Restaurant on Main Street.

Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously received assistance. Applications must adhere to the following criteria: Façade or site must be within Meredith; proposed improvements must be visible from the street and must embrace the Façade & Site Improvement Design Committee Guidelines. Projects are to be submitted to the Design Committee and only one application per applicant may be submitted for 2014.

The following points will be considered by the GMP Design Committee: visual impact of the improvements and their overall effect, the historical significance of the property and the ability of the GMP to leverage its funding with other sources.

Applications must be received by the end of November and successful applicants will be notified in January.

Gilford to get update on 331-acre Gage Parcel

GILFORD — Russ Wilder, chairman of the Belknap Range Conservation Coalition, will present a program on the findings of an ecological assessment conducted by ecologist, Dr. Rick Van de Poll of the Gage property at a meeting at the Gilford Library, Potter Hill Road,on Wednesday, November 6 at 6:30 p.m.

The 331-acre Gage parcel is a major portion of Moulton Valley in the Belknap Range and is comprised of the northeastern slopes of Piper Mountain nearly to the top, and south and southeast faces of Belknap Mountain. It is one of four parcels, totaling 961 acres, that the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests (SPNHF), the Lakes Region Conservation Trust (LRCT) and the Belknap Range Conservation Coalition (BRCC) are working to preserve.

The project faces a December 1 deadline.

The importance of protecting the Gage parcel has been well known by Gilford's Land Conservation Task Force and Conservation Commission as evidenced by 10 years of previous attempts at procuring its 331 acres.

Belknap Range map maker/hiker/historian, Dave Roberts has agreed to be in the audience to answer questions and to share his love for this particular property. Roberts made the first comprehensive accurate map of the 70-mile trail network in the Belknaps and was recently honored by the SPNHF as its Conservationist of the Year.o
