Planning Board and Selectmen Will Discuss the Sunapee Center

Discussion in Sunapee about the Sunapee Center, a 5-acre parcel with buildings on Sargent Road, continues this week when the town’s planning board meets with the board of selectmen on Thursday, August 20 at 7:30 p.m. The planning board continues to work on revisions to the town’s 1998 master plan, a multi-year process that began in 2006. Tomorrow’s session take places as part of the planning board’s master plan meeting, regularly held the third Thursday of the month.

The board of selectmen August 10 met with other town and school representatives, members of the school board and board of trustees of Abbott Library, to discuss possible uses of the Sunapee Center complex. Located across the town’s safety service building, the property is also near the central elementary school and Sherburne gym and adjacent to the state highway that cuts through the center of town. Town leaders and community members are looking at the property to see if it makes sense to acquire the property for future civic needs and to possibly centralize services and create a town center complex.

The property, taken over by Claremont Savings Bank by foreclosure, includes open land and buildings.
