Here’s a link to the Article as it will appear on the Ballot:
What it means: The town owns land known as “Twelve Shares”, which is a popular open space used for various recreational activities. This Article seeks to establish a self-funding reserve and a stewardship system to make small improvements such as trails or signage. Activities would be managed by a new Town Forestry Committee made up of the Conservation Commission and the town’s Tree Warden.
Those in favor say: This allows stewardship of the town’s forest for the safety and continued enjoyment of Hampton residents.
Those against say: No one spoke against this Article at Deliberative Session.
Fiscal Impact: No tax impact.
