Safety Issues on Portland Avenue

The Select Board is once again reviewing safety issues on Portland Avenue and has invited Traffic Engineer William Lambert from the NH Department of Transportation to review these issues with the Board on Monday, January 22, as part of the Board’s regular Monday meeting.    We hope to start this part of the meeting close to 7:00.

 

As always, the public can attend all meetings of the Select Board but please note that this is not a public hearing.   We may choose to open up the meeting for a very brief time for some public comments but we will also be cognizant of the need to return to the rest of our business agenda.

 

MapGeo Property Info Tool

The Select Board has recently subscribed to MapGeo, a property and mapping tool hosted by the Strafford Regional Planning Commission.  It allows a user to view property card information, along with other information related to zoning, land use, natural resources, transportation projects, and socioeconomic factors in Rollinsford and the region. Use the “Search” button to find properties by owner name, address, or parcel ID, or click a parcel on the map to get its property card record. Additional, click the “Themes” button to view the available data layers, and toggle each on and off.   There is a HELP function to answer some basic questions.
The Select Board will be hosting an information session with trained SRPC staff sometime this winter or early Spring.   We encourage you to check this out and  come to the info session with your questions.
