Excerpt from Annual Report of the Town of Newmarket, New Hampshire, by the Selectmen, Town Clerk, Tax Collector, Town Treasurer, and Other Town Departments, Boards and Commissions, for the Year Ending December 31, 1980: With the Vital Statistics for 1980 The Selectmen respectfully submit to the citizens of the Town of Newmarket our annual report on town activities for the year 1980. Your board underwent significant change in the past year. After many years of commitment and dedicated service to the town, Frank Schanda chose not to seek another term on this board. Then in mid-summer our hard-working Chairman, Ron Bird, resigned because of the time conﬂicts with his job. But throughout the year old and new faces worked together on projects of importance to the town, and progress was made in many areas. The town computer, authorized by you at last year's Town Meeting, was installed this summer. This new equipment is already in use for town tax bills, and as it becomes more fully utilized in the months ahead, our accounting and financial systems will be dramatically improved. The Community Development Office made good progress throughout the year, improving residences in the downtown area. In addition, plans are underway for improvements in the Church and Rock Streets area, and recommendations for development of the waterfront property behind the Town Hall are being studied. At year's end, we were happy to learn that Newmarket will be receiving an additional grant for downtown revitalization, housing rehabilitation, and sidewalk, drainage and parking improvements. These grants allow us to make major progress in efforts to preserve and renew our town's center, without adding to the property tax burden. Renovation by private developers of the old school on Zion's Hill was completed, and it is now serving as affordable, comfortable housing for senior citizens. At year's end, we were finalizing a new personnel handbook for town employees, and preparing to seek bids for the rewiring of the Town Hall's electrical system, and for the design of a new public safety building. In 1981, as always, we look forward to greater citizen participation on the various boards and commissions, and in the work of town government. In the past year, the value of citizen input was shown in the development of the proposed Master Plan and Zoning Ordinance. The Sounding Board worked hard to listen to the many and varied concerns and interests of citizens from all parts of town, and to balance those interests in the Plan and Ordinance which they have presented to the Planning Board. This proposal is now submitted to you. Your Selectmen have endorsed the ordinance as.a good means to help us manage and plan the future grt and development of our community.
