The process of getting a Greenland representative on the Pease Development Board of Directors has begun. The NH Legislature voted Thursday February 14, 2019 to add two members to the Pease Development Authority board of directors. One of the new members will be another gubernatorial appointee and the other will be from Greenland.

HB 243 sponsored by state Sens. Martha Fuller Clark and by Tom Sherman and state Reps. Dennis Malloy and Tamara Le will be sent to the Senate for its approval.

State Rep. Dennis Malloy said the bill was created after talking with Greenland town leaders and dozens of Greenland voters who wanted a “seat at the table and help everybody understand how we can help Pease with the traffic situation we have in Greenland.”

Pease Traffic Con...

At a joint meeting of the Greenland Selectmen and the Greenland Planning Board it was announced that Greenland will be involved in Lonza Biologics expansion talks at the Pease Tradeport.

As the PDA reviews the proposed Lonza expansion which could bring 1,000 more jobs to Pease, Greenland officials have complained that the more than 10,000 workers already employed at the tradeport create traffic congestion on Route 33, which runs through the town.

It also revealed that the intersection at Winnicut Road has been identified as a "failed" intersection according to F. Giles Ham, a traffic consultant hired by Greenland.

The "good news" according to Selectman Paul Sanderson is that the PDA has a agreed that the proposed Lonza expansion will be treated as a development of regional impact.

Select Board Chair stressed that "growth we think is good for the area," and that "we are not going to be antigrowth at Pease."

At the same time, Morgan said that we want to be sure our "town doesn't get stepped on."
