To The Daily Sun,
On August 3, I asked the Governor and Executive Council to form an advisory committee to be established to review the sale of the Laconia State School property as required by RSA 176:113, Laws of 2015. The governor and council agreed.
Soon after, an advisory committee was formed of eight board members from the N.H. Department of Administration Services, the N.H. Department of Environmental Services, N.H. Department of Health and Human Services, the N.H. House, the N.H. Senate, N.H. Department of Resources and Economic Development, the City of Laconia and the Belknap Economic Development Council. The advisory committee members have met three times already to discuss recommendations to the state on the sale of the property.
The first meeting was held at the Statehouse on Aug. 25, the second one at the Laconia School State property at the Dube Building on Sept. 14, and the third one took place at the Dube Building on Oct. 19. The next (and most likely final meeting) will be held at the Statehouse in Concord in mid-November which will be posted on the state website: http://www.nh.gov/council/meetings/laconia-state-school.htm. Additionally, minutes and agenda items are posted at this same site.
It is the intentions of the committee to have a draft report after the next meeting. The recommendations coming from the committee will ultimately be made into a final draft and presented to the public prior to a future Governor and Executive Council meeting in Concord. It has always been the intent based off of these recommendations to secure a better understanding of what is being sold and how to best market the property.
For any further questions please don't hesitate to call my office at 271-3632.
