“City receives important permit from state
for bluff excavation
As part of the permitting required for the excavation of a portion of the bluffs on the waterfront, the City through its consultant Horsley Witten Group, prepared an application and detailed plans that were submitted to the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services. On Sept. 1, 2017, the NHDES Alteration of Terrain Bureau granted to the City the Alteration of Terrain Permit AoT-1264.
The City is still waiting on the issuance of a Wetlands Permit from NHDES Wetlands Bureau for a wetland on the bluff that will be impacted by the excavation. Once that is obtained the bluff removal can proceed. We remain hopeful that the work can begin this fall. “
