Good Day All;
The other note is about a CATCH (Community Area Trust for Community Housing) project on Village Street next to the cemetery. While I am unable to vote on any issues regarding this project that comes before the city council because my wife is on the Penacook Community Center’s Board, I can pass on information to you that is in the public domain.
Here is a link to the Concord Monitor’s April 2nd article on this project: https://www.concordmonitor.com/Penacook-Community-Center-sells-space-to-CATCH-Housing-24566229
In addition to the two reports that I have included, CATCH has also asked the Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA) to grant them a variance. They are a couple of feet short of the requirement for the amount of frontage on Village Street that is required under our zoning ordinances for the proposed project.
This is the link to the April 3rd ZBA meeting. You can click on Item 12-19 for additional information: http://www.concordnh.gov/ArchiveCenter/ViewFile/Item/4524
Report-165 is Item #16 from the city council’s April 8th, agenda and will amend the zoning from an RM to CG District. Report-167 is Item # 23 and authorizes the City Manager to enter into an Option to Purchase with CATCH - Allan
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 12, 2019
Without question, the telephone has taken center stage in most people’s lives – studies show that the average person spends 4 hours per day on their phones – but long before the telephone played such a big role in our personal lives, it became a budding star in other ways.
Each spring, Concord General Services' Highway and Utilities Division flushes City-owned hydrants as part of required routine maintenance to remove any sediment from water distribution pipes. This process maintains water quality, water clarity, and also checks for water pressure. Water customers may experience low water pressure and discolored water in their area during hydrant flushing. Residents should avoid doing laundry during their scheduled flushing time. If discoloration occurs, please run your tap water on cold until the water runs clear.
Annual Race Supports Scholarship Fund
CONCORD — For the 15th consecutive year, NHTI, Concord’s Community College and Northeast Delta Dental (NEDD) are prepping for their annual 5K road race. The NHTI/Northeast Delta Dental 5K is part of the Concord Area Race Series (CARS), and has become a Concord area “hallmark” event. The race is open to the public, and around 500 runners typically participate.
The New Hampshire Farm Bureau Federation Young Farmer Committee held their annual Legislative Breakfast event at Pearl & Sons Farm in Loudon on Tuesday, March 26. Each spring, the group of agricultural enthusiasts between the ages of 16 and35 invites members of the NH House Environment & Agriculture Committee, federal lawmakers, and other movers and shakers in NH agriculture to join them for a hearty meal and an opportunity to hear concerns facing young farmers across the state.
Volunteer subjects needed for students’ clinical exams
CONCORD — NHTI’s dental hygiene students still need your help! The students are required to take a clinical board exam to obtain licensure, and are in desperate need of volunteer patients for this exam.
The dental hygiene students will hold another open clinic on Monday, April 1, 2019 from 5-8pm, for screenings to determine if volunteers meet the criteria to qualify as board patients. All screenings and any necessary x-rays will be free of charge, and x-rays will be forwarded to the patient’s dentist on request. Free toothbrushes and toothpaste will be given to all volunteers. You may call the dental clinic to register for this screening at (603) 230-4023.
