This letter was sent to the town of Moultonborough confirming we have completed all necessary work mandated for private road upkeep. Click here to see the letter.
The DPW Director has identified all “roads currently being plowed in the winter and listing them in certain categories that will serve as the basis for their designation. Four categories will be used including: Bus routes, thru roads, roads leading to lake access and general Town benefit roads.”
The Town of Moultonborough Selectman Board has approved this Emergency Lane Designation and our roads will continue to be plowed in the winter under the third designation “roads leading to lake access”.
The Town requires that all private roads meet the following requirements: Roads must be passable and maintained at all times for fire trucks and emergency vehicle access. Tree branches overhanging our roads must be trimmed to 14″ including branches that will droop to 14′ when snow covered and the brush along the sides of our roads needs to be trimmed back 5′.
We have contracted with Brian and Dave Thompson to trim the overhanging trees and brush cut the sides of our roads in October. They will also apply ledge pack and rake it in areas of our roads that need treatment.
The town meeting on August 24th went as expected. Representatives for our Association were in attendance and spoke about our roads. The Selectmen will vote on whether to classify certain of the roads, or all of them, as Emergency Lanes at their next regularly scheduled meeting on September 7th. There will be no further public input at that meeting.
In addition, the Association is required to trim brush and tree branches for the town to continue plowing.Trees overhanging our roads must be trimmed to at least 14′ high (that includes trees with snow on them that would hang below 14′). Each edge of the roads must be trimmed back 5′. The Association has hired contractors to do this work after Labor Day.
All residents of Toltec Point and Richardson Shores should have received a copy of the notice sent from the town. Click here to view a copy.
The hearing on August 24th relative to designating most of the private roads in Town as Emergency Lanes is the Town’s solution to the issue of using tax dollars for snow plowing and sanding private road. The purpose of this hearing is to permit the continued plowing and sanding of our roads by the Town.
It is not necessary or required for an owner on any of the roads proposed to be classified as Emergency Lanes to be present at the hearing. Joe, our president, will be at the hearing to state that our Association is in favor of having Toltec Point Road and Richardson Shores Road designated as Emergency Lanes.
