Housing Survey

Housing is a hot issue. In NH and throughout the country, scarce available housing is putting a strain on working families and preventing businesses from recruiting and retaining a workforce. Throughout the year 2022, Strafford Regional Planning Commission will work to address this as part of its Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA). 

To inform this important project, SRPC wants to hear from Rollinsford residents. How has the housing crisis impacted you and your family? What factors influence where you chose to rent or purchase? Do you see yourself staying put, or moving, and why?

Take their online survey to share your housing successes and challenges, and be part of a framework for change. Stay up to date on the project, and other opportunities for participating in outreach on the project webpage. Contact Shayna Sylvia, communications and outreach planner, with any questions.

2022 Revaluation

The Town of Rollinsford’s 2022 Revaluation is now underway. Employees of Avitar Associates of New England, Inc. are currently working to verify the accuracy of tax cards of properties town-wide. In most cases, this will be accomplished from the road view, however Avitar may need to walk around outside at a property to obtain measurements in cases of new construction, additions or changes to structures.

Avitar employees carry identification and vehicles are clearly marked, however if you have any questions or concerns about someone on your property, please contact the Rollinsford Police Department.
If you have any questions regarding the 2022 Revaluation, please email selectboard@rollinsford.nh.us.

Camp Rolly 2022

After careful consideration the Recreation Committee has decided to postpone Camp Rolly for another year. We hope to have it back in the summer of 2023. At the moment, we cannot bring forth the program we want in the timeframe available. There is a lot that goes into putting on a quality safe program and the committee is currently very limited in its membership to do it all. 

   The committee is looking into other programs in which our kids could attend for this year, instead of Camp Rolly. In addition, we are putting together a list of the many aspects that go into the camp that we need help with. If you or someone you know has time to volunteer (only a few hours a month is enough), please let us know.
