For those of you that do not support this project at all, on April 13, 2011 there was a vote of New Hampton residents and property owners who overwhelmingly approved a Resolution which stated that the town objected to the project as proposed with 80 foot to 130 foot towers along our hillsides!  The project continues to move forward.

As stated on the website for the Northern Pass project, Forward NH Plan, the redesigned Northern minimizes impacts by using existing transmission corridors and public roadways. Northern Pass in August unveiled a modified route that includes an additional 52 miles of underground technology that eliminates the potential for visual impacts in and around the White Mountain National Forest.  The proposed Northern Pass line crosses the Canadian border in Pittsburg and heads south, where it runs mainly UNDERGROUND before reaching Bridgewater, where the line returns to OVERHEAD as it continues through New Hampton and further south.

Public Information Sessions Held for Northern Pass
The New Hampshire Site Evaluation Committee (SEC) held five Public Information Sessions, Jan. 11th in Franklin, Jan. 13th in Londonderry, Jan. 14th in Laconia, Jan. 20th in Whitefield, and Jan. 21st in Lincoln.

Under state law, Public Information Sessions were held in each county in which the proposed facility is to be located within 45 days of a project’s application being accepted. Similar to the Public Information Sessions held last September, they gave residents another opportunity to participate in the state approval process.

“The purpose of the public information session is to provide the public with information on the proposed Project, to provide an opportunity for comments and questions from the public, and to explain the process the Subcommittee will follow in reviewing the application,” as stated in a public notice issued by the SEC.


Additional Northern Pass information can be found further down on this homepage.

The US Department of Energy (DOE) has devised this comprehensive list of alternatives. These alternatives to the proposed project will be analyzed as part of DOE's draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). DOE plans to issue its draft EIS by December of this year.

Alert From New Hampton Police Department

!! SCAMS ARE ON THE RISE !!

One resident received a call from someone claiming to be their grandchild in Ecuador crying, saying she had been arrested for drunk driving and needed money. The resident asked why she didn’t sound like her granddaughter and the caller said because she had been involved in an accident and had stitches near her mouth, maybe a broken nose as well. Then a man came on the phone saying he was law enforcement and she needed to wire the money right away.  These callers are tricky and can be very convincing.  Thankfully the resident did not fall for it.

A second resident called the police stating that a male left three messages on her answering machine saying he was “Officer Eric Foster” and if they don’t call him back he “issues them Good Luck”. A Google search shows this to be an old scam that is still being used. A third popular scam especially right now is someone claiming to be from the IRS. The recipient of that call hadn’t even filed his taxes yet so he knew something wasn’t right and hung up the phone.

Although law enforcement is unable to track these numbers we want to keep residents aware of these scams and the many other that are going around. If you receive any calls do not give out ANY information or money until the recipient can be verified either by contacting the person direct or preferably through law enforcement. There will NEVER be a situation that is so dire it cannot wait until it’s verified. If any resident needs assistance with verification please call the police department. We would also ask that anyone receiving this notice to reach out to people that do not receive this newsletter and to older residents or relatives whether they live in New Hampton or even New Hampshire. This is a nationwide problem and everyone needs to be careful.
