Local Road Regulation & Enforcement: A New Hard Road to Travel Workshop!
Friday, October 4, 2019 (9:00 a.m.—12:30 p.m. - Registration at 8:30 a.m.)
NHMA Offices, 25 Triangle Park Drive, Concord, NH
Workshop Cost: $65.00 (does not include publication)
A resident is draining her sump pump into the street, what can we do?
Private snow plow operators are leaving snow piles in town roads, is that legal?
A citizen on a Class VI is digging in the right-of-way, can we stop him?
Join NHMA Legal Services Counsel Stephen Buckley and Municipal Services Counsel Natch Greyes for the answers to these questions—and many more! The attorneys will discuss the enforcement of existing state laws that prohibit excavating in public streets without a permit, and that bar obstructing public roads with debris or improper drainage.
This workshop will also provide a complete inventory of local regulations the governing body can adopt to regulate parking, street numbers, street names, OHRV and snowmobile operation, speed limits, weight limits, as well as driveway regulation by the planning board. Ample time will also be spent on Class VI and private roads, including what municipalities—and residents—can and cannot do on these roads.
