Events, Mster Plan

We begin the work of updating the City’s Master Plan

Be a part of Nashua’s future.

oin us on November 5th at 6pm for a virtual meeting to kickoff Imagine Nashua! This one-year initiative will combine comprehensive community engagement with major plans created in the past 20 years, to craft an innovative vision for the future of Nashua. All meeting details will be posted on the Imagine Nashua website:

After the first meeting on November 5th, we will have large meetings (virtual) in early January and March to drill down into the different topics (Land Use and Development, Housing, Mobility and Transit, Economic Growth and Development, Open Space and Natural Resources, and Arts and Cultural Resources) and ideas that arise. In between each of the large meetings we will have many smaller group sessions to try to engage as many cultures and community members as possible through the Imagine Nashua website via polls, surveys and community feedback.

A year from now we will be updating the City’s Land Use Ordinances to reflect the vision and values developed by the community through this process.

We hope you will join us on November 5th, encourage your friends and family to join in, and engage with us at

Thank you,

Elections, Events

Elections Tuesday, November 5th

For new residents, you can register at the polls on election day. If you can’t be here that day stop by the City Clerk’s Office for an absentee ballot. If you stop by and see me I can give you my advice on the candidates and on the Questions on the back of the ballot. Nashua Transit is offering free rides to the polls.

Here is all the preparation you need. The League of Women Voters has a site with responses from Candidates that might help with decision making. for Ward 1. The City web site has everything else you might need.

There! I’ve removed all the hurdles people face on Election Day, so I’ll see you there next Tuesday.

Conflicting Calendars

While trying to be sensitive, sometimes there is no good answer.

I have received comments from a few constituents about the scheduling of the fall dinner event happening during a Jewish holiday. I’ve done a little research and have spoken with a few folks and this is what I found.

The plan has been that Sunday after Labor Day weekend is reserved for the Dinner on Main Street and the last Saturday in September, for the New England Roots Festival.

These regular dates are chosen so that people will come to expect and anticipate an event, and also to avoid overlapping with other large annual events like Art Walk or Apple Fest. With Rosh Hashanah falling anywhere from the beginning of September to early October, there is a good chance that it is going to bump into at least one fall event.
The good news is that for 2019 both of these holidays fall at the end of Sept/Early October – and so neither of the events will overlap with Yom Kippur or Rosh Hashanah.
