Hampton Beach Village District Monthly Meeting
Monthly meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month at 5:30 p.m.
Regular monthly meeting held in the Precinct Hall, upstairs at the Beach Fire Station.

Dear Friends,

I have been asked by our business community along Hampton Beach to send out this message to you as a resident of the Hampton Beach Village District to say a Big Thank You for your understanding and cooperation during this summer regarding the new traffic pattern and the closing of Ocean Blvd. They understand that this new pattern is bothersome and disruptive to some of you and the traffic back on some weekends delays you from getting to where you want to get to in a timely way.

As a small token of their appreciation a number of restaurants have come and will be participating in a HBVD resident-only restaurant discount card offering 20% off your food bill for the rest of the summer. Your card will be available for you to pick up at the Hampton Area Chamber Information Center at 160 Ocean Blvd. starting on July 3rd. Each resident will be required to show proof of HBVD residency in the form of a tax bill or a driver’s license with a HBVD address.

Restaurants include:

Bernie’s Beach Bar, Goat, Green Room, and Wally’s
Boardwalk Inn & Cafe
Cascade Seaside Restaurant and Deck
JB’s Seafood
L Street Tavern
McGuirk’s Ocean View
Purple Urchin
Sea Ketch Restaurant
Farr’s Famous Chicken

Once again Thank You and enjoy the summer.

UPDATE REGARDING SCHEDULING OF ANNUAL MEETING

Effective June 16, 2020, the Governor issued Emergency Order #52, which lifted the complete prohibition on scheduled gatherings of ten or more persons. However, the, the Governor’s Declared State of Emergency remains in effect. Although the Governor has provided guidance and protocols for how certain businesses may operate, he has not yet provided guidance and protocols for how local elections may be safely held. The Attorney General’s Office has advised that it expects to release guidance for how municipalities may safely hold annual meetings while still complying with all election statutes. Given the ongoing Declared State of Emergency and the unique concerns with safely holding an election in an enclosed space, the District’s election will remain postponed until further notice consistent with the notice of postponement dated June 1, 2020. As noted in previous announcements, for those who intended to vote by means of an absentee ballot, and who have mailed such ballots to the District Clerk and they will be held for counting on the date for which the annual meeting is ultimately scheduled.
Date: June 29, 2020
