Acceptance of a new highway can sometimes be contentious, but at least municipal officials have been able to rely on a fairly orderly procedure. A road as shown on a subdivision plan is installed by a developer and "dedicated," that is, offered, to the municipality as a public highway. The dedication is "accepted" as a Class V highway by vote of the town meeting, Polizzo v. Hampton, 126 N.H. 398 (1985), or board of selectmen, if the authority has been delegated. In cities, acceptance is by vote of the city council. Perotto v. Claremont, 101 N.H. 267 (1958).
