Most Blueberry Hill Rd. residents want 'scenic' designation lifted

To The Daily Sun,

I would like to bring Meredith Article #8 to your attention. It is a petition signed by MOST residents (not all) of Blueberry Hill Road to rescind Blueberry Hill Road as a scenic road.

Blueberry Hill Road was deemed a scenic road back in 2007, originated by a resident who no longer lives in the state. Its origin is believed to be done due to the Page Pond property possibly being developed at that time. Page Pond is now conservation land and our road is in no danger of being attached by a developer.

A "scenic road" is not what you think. It's not beautiful views and mountains, it's all about trees and stonewalls and actually stonewalls is a state law whether your road is scenic or not. Our road is in dire need of removing large dead trees and having us put on a list for N.H. Electric Co-op to remove limbs and trees, if necessary, from the power lines. Yes, we can have both Meredith Public Works and N.H. Co-op go through a process, which is time consuming and avoided by both departments, unless an emergency, it's going through the planning board, marking trees, etc. Without the scenic road designation, the town and power company can be proactive in maintaining the trees and keeping the road safe without having to go through hoops to cut dead trees. I have complete confidence in both public works and N.H. Co-op they know what trees need to be removed and not going to clear cut just because they can! Please help us keep our road safe and vote to rescind our designated scenic road, its nothing but dead trees and not scenic.
