It's Giving Tuesday
You, your friends, and community members from the region and beyond are creating an Amazing Rail Trail. Donate this Giving Tuesday to keep it going.
What makes the Concord-Lake Sunapee Rail Trail so special?
We didn't have a state owned railroad corridor to build on - so your neighbors started donating easements so the trail could be built.
We couldn't afford paid management - so your neighbors donated their time and expertise to get easements written, organize projects, rally community support, and get ready to build.
We didn't have huge grants to get us started - so you and your neighbors donated the money to get us started.
To keep construction costs low we asked for volunteer help. Again you and your neighbors stepped in and contributed your time, materials and equipment.
And now that we are working on larger projects an anonymous donor has challenged us to raise $50,000 and they will match it. Amazing!
This truly is a project that is succeeding because you, your neighbors and all of us in the community believe in the vision of a 34 mile rail trail connecting Concord, Hopkinton, Warner, Sutton, Bradford and Newbury.
We continue to raise funds to build this 2.5 mile section of trail in Concord from Carter Hill Rd to Fisherville Rd. We have support from the Bureau of Trails, New England Grassroots Environmental Fund, Central NH Bicycle Coalition, Runners Alley, Bangor Savings Bank, and Goodales Bike Shops. But we need more to get the job done. We've been clearing brush all fall and working to establish parking on Fisherville Rd. We are trying to have this open for snowshoeing and X-C skiing and snowmobiling this winter.
Please donate today.
First up is taxes. Those in the CSD will see a decrease in their tax rates while those in the MVSD will see an increase. However your taxes may go up in both school districts. MVSD because of the increase in tax rates and assessed values and CSD because the increase in assessed value may cancel out the reduction in the tax rate.
Specific information for all properties will be available on line, at the assessors office and in the library beginning November 12th.
I have attached two files regarding taxes. One is the assessment report and the other describes tax rates. And I have attached a link to the city’s data base for assessed property values.

CONCORD, NH — Come discover what makes Girl Scouts the leading expert on girls! Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains will host a free information night for girls and parents on Thursday, Nov. 21, from 6 to 7 p.m. at Penacook Elementary School, 60 Village St., Concord.
The VNA is doing a Flu Shot Clinic on Monday, October 28th from 12 to 2 PM at the Salisbury Town Hall, located on Route 4 at 645 Old Turnpike Road in Salisbury, NH.
Be a part of building the Concord-Lake Sunapee Rail Trail this Saturday October 19.
We will be cutting brush. Your volunteer time helps in two ways. First you help the trail get a necessary job done. Second, every hour you give helps us with our match requirement on a Recreational Trails Program grant we have from the NH Bureau of Trails. This has a huge impact. And we all have fun. Plus, we'll be buying pizza for the crew for lunch.
