Veteran's Park Memorial
Route 104 and Intervale Drive


The dedication ceremony for the new Veterans Park Memorial on Friday, November 11th was well attended under a blue sky and bright sunshine. 

After brief welcoming remarks, Pastor Scott Mitchell from New Hampton Community Church delivered an Invocation to open the ceremony.  New Hampton employees, Sgt. Kuc and PFC Seavey (US Army) raised the flag followed by the National Anthem led by Kyle Masterson and Amanda Jennison, faculty members of New Hampton School. 

Town Administrator, Neil Irvine, read a letter from Senator Shaheen, and provided details on the design of the park saying “We are all familiar with the honors rendered by a 21-gun salute and so the number 21 was incorporated into the design with the granite posts being set 21 feet from the flagpole and separated by 21 degrees of arc.”  He continued “The posts face East, watching the sun rise on a new day in our great Nation, with the section of stonewall representing the families of those called to serve.

Mr. Tierney then spoke of the journey to make the memorial possible from the original idea from Ethel Schofield, through design and fundraising, to the site work and installation by the New Hampton Department of Public Works, saying “a good idea will not be denied.”  The Board of Selectmen then uncovered the plaque, presenting the memorial to the public.  Pastor Scott concluded the ceremony with a Benediction.

Can I use my property as a Short-Term Rental?

It is possible… if you can obtain all the proper approvals first
 
Short-Term Rentals are regulated in the New Hampton Zoning Ordinances under the definition of “Bed & Breakfast/Tourist Home”, which is defined as “A single dwelling where transient accommodations for sleeping or living purposes for not more than six persons are provided for a fee.”

This use is permitted by Special Exception in all zoning districts except BI, BC2 & BC3 which requires application to and approval by the Zoning Board of Adjustment.  As this use is a change in use from residential to commercial real estate a Site Plan Review is also required by the Planning Board.

These approvals have to be in place prior to being offered for rental.

Please contact the Town Office if you require more information about this process, the regulations or if a property has obtained the proper approvals.
 
Can I add an "in-law apartment" to my property?

It is possible… if you can obtain the proper approvals first

An “in-law apartment” or Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) is defined in the New Hampton Zoning Ordinance as “A residential living unit that is within or attached to a single-family dwelling or accessory building, and that provides independent living facilities for one or more persons, including provisions for sleeping, eating, cooking and sanitation on the same parcel of land as the principal dwelling unit it accompanies.”

This use is permitted by Special Exception in all zoning districts except BI and requires application to and approval by the Zoning Board of Adjustment.  There are specific criteria and size limitations that have to be met which can be found in the zoning ordinance; see Article V, Section Q:2.

Adding an ADU will require a Building Permit and an Occupancy Permit before occupying, and adding an ADU is not the same as just adding a bedroom to your home and may require a new septic design approval from NH DES due to the increased loading on the system which could exceed your current approved system.

These approvals have to be in place prior to construction and/or occupancy.

Please contact the Town Office if you require more information about this process, the regulations or if a property has obtained the proper approvals.
 
2020-2023 Full Cyclical Revaluation
Letters Sent to Some Property Owners

Town of New Hampton News Release

     New Hampton has contracted with the assessing firm of Commerford Nieder Perkins, LLC (CNP) for the four-year revaluation of property for the Town of New Hampton.  They continue to visit all of the properties in the town, but will do so in sections.  The Maps to be visited in 2022 are R01 through R03, R12 through R15, R19 & R20, and U8 & & U9.
     If the homeowner is not home, the appraiser will leave a notice stating that they visited the property and measured the buildings, and also indicate that the homeowner will receive a letter in the future, which will provide information regarding the interior inspection processClick here for an example of their letter.
     Due to the continued issues with COVID19, the data collector may perform an interior inspection if both parties are comfortable with doing so and a mask will be worn by both parties. An interior inspection typically should not take more than 10 minutes. No property will be entered unless there is someone 18 years of age or older at home at the time of the visit. They will be looking for information such as: quality of construction, year built, functional utility, condition, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, type of floors, type of interior walls, and type of heat.
 
Completing the Revaluation Process 
     In the late fall of 2023, the final values will be set for all properties based on the current market conditions at that time.  Each property owner will receive a letter with their new assessed value and detailed information regarding taxpayer hearings if there are questions or concerns regarding the value. Once these hearings have been completed the new valuations will be used to generate the new tax rate and tax bills.  If a property owner is still aggrieved by their value, they may then file an abatement with the town by March 1st, 2024.
