Here is the latest from the NH Shorefront Association
WHY JOIN THE NHSA?
The NH Shorefront Association (NHSA) is dedicated to awareness of regulatory proposals and potential changes that may affect shorefront property. The NHSA is the only state-wide organization focused specifically on the interests of waterfront owners and dedicated to balanced resource management. We believe that reasonable development and reasonable environmental stewardship can exist in harmony. We want to protect water quality for generations to come.
During the Fall and Winter of 2006-07, in reviewing the Comprehensive Shoreland Protection Act (CSPA) many changes were discussed, hearings were held, and statutes were passed by the NH Legislature with little input from the actual waterfront regulated community. Only at the very end of the process, after the NH House had already passed the bills, did shorefront owners get involved in the process. It was at this point that a number of us realized that there needed to be a better way to get information available, during the off season, to waterfront owners and interested parties. The obvious next step is to use this information to lobby pro-actively on behalf of shorefront owners.
By joining, you will be aware of proposals and future changes that affect your property and you will have access to information so that you can be involved in the process up-front, rather than after the changes have already been enacted. As our organization grows, we endeavor to pro-actively affect change in the regulatory environment affecting waterfront property.
