Full Cyclical Revaluation
 Completing the Revaluation Process 
The assessing firm is finalizing visits to properties in New Hampton.  In the next month, the final values will be set for all properties based on the current market conditions.  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 1, 2024.

Cyanobacteria Warning - Winona Lake
The cyanobacteria WARNING (ADVISORY) that was issued, has been REMOVED for Winona Lake, New Hampton / Center Harbor as of August 3, 2023.  While the bloom accumulation has dissipated, NHDES advises that lake-goers look out for green surface accumulations in the future. Please continue to monitor your individual shoreline for changing conditions.  

Cyanobacteria toxins can cause both acute and chronic health effects that vary in severity. Acute health effects include irritation of the skin and mucous membranes, tingling, numbness, nausea, vomiting, seizures, and diarrhea. Chronic effects may include liver and central nervous system damage. Be cautious of lake water that has a surface scum, changes colors, or appears to have green streaks or blue-green flecks aggregating along the shore.

NHDES recommendation is to avoid contact with any area of water experiencing a visible bloom. Pets and children especially should NOT make contact with the water.
If a person or animal is sick from a potential cyanobacteria exposure, please seek medical attention. Inform your physician or veterinarian that you or your pet may have been exposed to toxic cyanobacteria via recreation.

Good Morning New Hampton

“Good Morning New Hampton” is a scheduled check-in program with the New Hampton Fire Department to assist our at-risk population; the elderly population, those with special needs who live alone, or residents who live with others unable to effectively communicate that help is needed.  It will allow those with limited support to maintain their independence for as long as possible. It is also helpful to those that have recently been released from the hospital or a rehabilitation facility. This program allows family, friends, and/or neighbors the added comfort of knowing that the individual is having regular contact with local personnel.

If you, or someone you know, would like more information please contact New Hampton Fire Department at 603-744-2735.
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.
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.
