Moultonborough studying what kind of recreation facility to offer to voters

MOULTONBOROUGH — The town which has had the development of a facility for use by the Recreation Department under consideration for some time, has kicked off a study of what the residents and taxpayers desire for recreation programs and the priorities they place on the town meeting those needs.

The study starts with a survey that residents and taxpayers may now access on the town's website. Those interested  may go to www.moultonboroughnh.gov and click on the yellow box which reads UNH Recreation Study. It is immediately below the home page picture. Those who prefer taking such surveys in a paper format may pick a copy of the survey at Town Hall or the Public Library and drop it off at the reception desks once completed.

Those who cannot get to either location may call 1.603.476.2347 to request a survey be mailed to them along with a return pre-stamped envelope. All surveys need to be submitted by October 27, 2014.

The survey is one part of a multi-prong public participation process being carried out by a team of professors and graduate students from the UNH Department of Recreation Management and Policy. Additional opportunities to participate in the process will include the interview of stakeholders in focus groups and a town-Wide forum scheduled to take place Oct. 22, starting at 5:30 p.m.

Jon Tolman, chairman of the Selectboard, said, "This is a most important initiative in trying to resolve the long standing issue of what the right level of recreation programming and facilities is for our community. I encourage everyone to participate in at least one – if not more – of the many forums being offered."

More information on how to participate in those meetings will be forthcoming in the upcoming weeks in local media and the Town's web site.

Additional information on this process may be accessed by going to the Town's web site, clicking on Town Committees and clicking on BRC/Gym Facility Needs & Feasibility Study by UNH. Interested parties may also send comments or questions which go beyond the scope of the survey to Carter Terenzini, Town Administrator, by mail (Offices of the SelectBoard, 6 Holland St., PO Box 139, Moultonborough, NH 03254) by email ( This email address is being protected from spambots.
