  1. A long-time resident provided documents to the Selectmen that, she said, supports her assertion that Esther Parsons had not wanted the TD Bank parcel put to a government use.
  2. Approval of the $300,000 conservation acquisition associated with the South Rd. development settlement was tabled after a resident expressed concerns, including non-compliance with 2015 Article 27, which requires a hazardous waste study for land previously used commercially.
  3. The Rockingham Planning Commission presented the results of their study on Dow Ln. traffic.
  4. The owner of 56 acres of land adjacent to the Town Forest complained about the lack of effective action to control dogs and the fact that three members of the Conservation Commission are opposed the leash law.
  5. Selectman Jenness’ motion to support two New Hampshire House bills on Coakley Landfill remediation and a transparency requirement for the Coakley Landfill Group died for lack of a second after Selectman Musselman, admitting that he was a member of “the group,” warned that the issue was none of Rye’s business.
  6. The Housing Partnership’s proposal for the Parsonage Apartments, if any, will be presented in April. Rent increases of thirty percent appear likely.
