Announcing the Retirement of Town Administrator Barbara Lucas

At the Selectmen’s meeting of December 12th, Selectmen Mark Denoncour read the following Commendation from Governor Christopher Sununu:
 
“Whereas Barbara Lucas is the Town Administrator of the Town of New Hampton and is retiring on December 19, 2019 after more than 28 years of honorable service to the Town, (Mr. Denoncour stated that it was actually 30 years)
 
Whereas Barbara has been an ardent protector of the environmental quality of the Town of New Hampton through her work in marshalling local resources and expertise in helping to implement an innovative gas extraction strategy in the closing of the New Hampton Landfill,
 
And whereas she successfully led the Town in the construction of the Central Street Bridge, a main access road from the town to nearby business areas, saving many residents from driving extra miles to work and seeking recreation in surrounding communities,

 
And whereas she served those most in need by insuring that every resource was available to our most vulnerable residents recognizing that she made a real difference in the lives of many,
 
Whereas she worked tirelessly and persistently in developing plans for a Public Safety Building that was adopted after several votes giving citizens of New Hampton a valuable resource that will serve future generations,

 
And whereas Barbara has clearly demonstrated her remarkable interpersonal and leadership skills as she guided 19 different Selectmen and women, 17 different Boards of Selectmen and women, over the course of her 28 year career,
 
Now therefore I, Christopher T. Sununu, Governor of the State of New Hampshire, do hereby commend Barbara Lucas for her service and dedication to the Town of New Hampton and wish her all the best for the future.”

 
Barbara started in New Hampton by assisting with the Planning Board and later helping the first Selectmen’s Assistant Elaine Seaver with the day to day tasks in the office.  Eventually Barbara became the Town’s first Town Administrator.  Over the years Barbara accomplished so much, as many individuals are aware of.  In addition to the accomplishments noted in Governor Sununu’s Commendation, with many more that were not noted, she was very proud that she helped New Hampton obtain two grants, one to repair the original windows in the historic Town House and another to restore two old stage curtains.  The Town House is part of New Hampton’s history and she recognized it as something to be treasured, while preserving its historic significance. 
 
Doing what was best for New Hampton was first and foremost in Barbara’s decision making process.  She enjoyed bringing all of the affected and interested parties together for the best solution on any issue facing the Town.  It was as if she was born and raised in New Hampton, as she cared for our town that much. 
 
Barbara Lucas will be greatly missed!
 

Neil Irvine has stepped down as Chairman of the Board of Selectmen and assumed the role of Interim Town Administrator while the Board begins the recruitment process to find our next Town Administrator.

Road Surface Management System Report Results

In March the town voted to approve appropriations to perform an inventory and evaluation of paved town roads using a road surface management software (RSMS) to develop a detailed management plan with recommendations for future improvements.  The Lakes Region Planning Commission performed this assessment and created this plan in partnership with the NH Department of Transportation and UNH Technology Transfer Center. Inventory and Assessments were entered into the RSMS software for analysis, prioritization, and generation of repair strategies. Repair strategies and a 10-year budget plan have been prepared in partnership with the town and presented within this report.  This management plan will be used as a tool by the Highway Dept.

The History Corner
A Futuristic View of the Village – from 1909

 
The turn of a decade is a good time to take stock of where we are and make some predictions for the future. Pictured below is a popular postcard from the early 1900s, bursting with optimism for what lies in store for New Hampton. With any luck, a resident of 1912 would soon be able to take a trolley to Bristol, soar over Mt. Cardigan in a dirigible, shoot off to Laconia on the skyway, or even take the subway to Ashland. It is hard to know the destination of the UFO that hovers over the trolley to Bristol, but perhaps it would transport folks to Concord… or Manchester… or even Boston! Best wishes for 2020 and beyond!
