Parks & Rec Notice

 

To:  Residents of Belmont

From:  Board of Selectmen

 

The Board of Selectmen has made the difficult decision to discontinue our Parks & Rec “Senior” programs at this time, due to the community response and attendance.

 

The last day of “Senior” programs will be Thursday, June 27th, 2024.

 

Parks & Rec will continue to offer other community events, activities and programs throughout the summer months, and we hope that everyone will find an activity to enjoy. For a list of future activities please visit our website at www.belmontnh.gov. or call the Parks and Rec Department directly at, 603-267-1865.

 

Parks & Rec and the Board of Selectmen will use this time to review the community events, activities and programs offered and make some decisions about future programs. 

 

As always, input from the community is appreciated.  Please reach out to the Town Administrator Alicia Jipson at administration@belmontnh.gov or 267-8300 xt. 124.

 

Thank you,  Belmont Board of Selectmen

Driveway Work/Paving

With the spring season underway, we would like to remind everyone that permits are required for any paving/ repaving/ reconstruction of a driveway or private road.  If you are on a Town road, applications are available on our website through the Info Center > Applications & Forms menu option (Belmont Driveway Application).  If you are on a State road, applications must be obtained through NHDOT: https://www.dot.nh.gov/services/driveway-permits  Obtaining your driveway permit helps protect our roadways and prevents drainage issues, which helps to reduce Town costs for road repairs.


Hawkers/Peddlers

Please take notice that "door knock" advertising/sales require a permit from the Belmont Police Department.  If someone knocks at your door offering to do work for you, or to sell you something, they should have a Hawkers/Peddlers permit issued by the Police Department.  This helps you determine if the company is legitimate or if they might be a scammer.  Contact the Belmont Police Department with any concerns you may have at 267-8351.
