Here’s a link to the Article as it will appear on the Ballot:
What it means: There are several large memorial walls dedicated to those who gave their lives in the Vietnam war. These moving memorials rotate throughout the country, by arrangement with local towns. The total cost is $20,000, much of which has been raised privately. The taxpayers are being asked to chip in the final $5,000 to have the moving wall come to Hampton Beach for approximately two weeks later this year.
Those in favor say: This would be an important educational experience for young and old alike. Those who have seen it in other locations say that it is very well done.
Those against say: It is a wonderful tribute, but the funds should all be raised privately, and not through property taxes.
Fiscal Impact: The average Hampton home valued at $329,000 would bear an increased tax cost of $.59 if this Article passes.
