- Tilton Housing Standards Boards Seeks Public Comment
The Tilton Housing Standards Boards Seeks Public Comment of Draft Housing Standards Ordinance on December 6, 2016 at 6:30 PM
Following several months of research, deliberation, drafting and revising, the Tilton Housing Standards Board has developed a draft housing standards ordinance, and is now seeking public comment during its second Public Hearing, scheduled for 6:30 PM on Tuesday December 6, 2016 at Tilton Town Hall, 257 Main Street, Tilton.
Originally charged with reviewing and possibly revising an ordinance that had been adopted in another New Hampshire community, the Board has made significant progress in developing a streamlined alternative, which it feels will better mesh with existing regulatory regimens and provide a clearer set of standards that all landlords and tenants can reference.
Following its second public hearing, the Board will consider comments received, accordingly make any necessary changes, and will then present a final recommendation to the Town. Copies of the draft ordinance are available online or at the Town Clerk's office.
For additional information, please contact Dari Sassan, Tilton Town Planner, at (603) 286-4521 or email@example.com.
