The recent sale of the two properties next to the Old Country and the clean up of both have made a marked improvement in my opinion to that section of the Village. I have no idea what the new owners plan to do with the buildings, but at least they looked " lived in" and not abandoned.
Adding to the Village improvement will be the 2nd Annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony ( and yes, unlike Marlborough NH, we will still call it a Christmas tree) on December 5th at 5:30pm. More information can be found here on the Town website.
More positive news from the Town Administrators weekly report: "I met with a representative of NH DRED
(Department of Resources and Economic Development), WEDCO (Wentworth Economic
Development Corporation) and owners of a local manufacturing business to talk about their
plans for possible expansion in Moultonborough. This could be an excellent opportunity for the
creation of quality jobs in Town. "
There will be a States Landing Beach, Boat Ramp & Park DesignWorkshop 1 on December 9th to work with the Planning Board "..to identify which
elements of the plan are priorities and which are not, to consider phasing and costs and develop a plan that
incorporates those changes."
Despite the doom and gloom crowd, positive things are happening around town and there are many, many good people of all ages making it happen. Moultonboro has enormous potential and a great many who care about its future. We may not always agree on what that is or how to get there, but we are going there anyway.
