- First Impressions Steering Committee for Tilton!
First Impressions is an assessment program that examines your downtown through the eyes of potential residents, visitors, and businesses, helping communities learn about their opportunities for improvement and empowering them to take action to improve their downtown.
The Tilton Community has been paired with the Pittsfield Community to conduct a First Impressions assessment of the other community's downtown area. Both communities have agreed to build a team of volunteers to complete visits to the other community and report on their findings. Participants will document their visit, report out and engage with their community to take steps to improve their town. The University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension will provide facilitation, training, a written report, and follow up support for a year.
The Steering Committee will:
- - Meet to learn about and plan the First Impressions process. A meeting is scheduled for June 5th from 4-5:30pm.
- - Participate in a one-day Community Visit to conduct a First Impressions downtown assessment in Pittsfield: Tentatively scheduled to occur the week of June 11.
- - Prepare a presentation outlining recommendations for Pittsfield with the assistance of UNH Cooperative Extension to be presented at a community meeting
- - Coordinate a community meeting in Tilton for the other community's First Impressions Steering Committee to present their recommendations (Will be scheduled in Early Fall)

- USDA Wildlife Services - Information on Bears
Prime black bear habitat includes deciduous forests (oaks, maple, beech etc.), wetlands, and riparian (along rivers) zones. The natural areas surrounding your town provide very good habitat for black bears. Many human-bear conflicts arise when bears frequent properties to access food attractants that are found around homes. The most common attractants are birdfeeders, unsecured garbage, and compost piles which include food scraps. Livestock, such as chickens and pigs, can also attract bears when not properly protected. Electric fencing is the most effective way to protect livestock. In most cases removing the attractant the bear(s) are utilizing eliminates the bear problem. It is also helpful to harass bears with noise, such as banging pots and pans, or using compressed air horns to scare them away.
