Even though yesterday was Library “Shelfie” Day, the library will be accepting pictures throughout the week.  Take a “Shelfie” (a selfie) in the stacks at the library or with your favorite book and submit your picture to [email protected] to be entered to win a prize.  More information has been posted to Facebook.  


We’ll be making valentines for veterans throughout the week of February 4-9.  The valentines will then be delivered to the NH Veterans’ Home in Tilton and/or The Liberty House in Manchester for further distribution.  Materials will be available at the library.  The veterans really appreciate being remembered.


Wednesday, February 6th is a special class in making valentines.  Check to see if any spaces are still available for this class where participants will be using needle and thread to craft beautiful cards by calling 603-798-5613.  Thanks to Elizabeth Marston for leading the class.

Citizens of Chichester, 

As you may have heard in the last couple months, weeks or even days Chichester is in the process of amending its current zoning ordinance. The zoning amendment will allow Chichester to govern the town better and steer away from outdated soil maps. This will still be keeping with the Master Plan and understanding the desire to keep the rural characteristics of Chichester alive. There have been a lot of questions asked and answered at the meetings and around town.


One of the big questions that everyone has asked is how will this effect my taxes or my current evaluation.  The new zoning will not affect your taxes or your current evaluation at all. The tax evaluation is determined with your current lot as it sits. It is not determined on how many house lots you could potentially have in the future or if it’s agricultural or residential. If you are currently in a five acre zoning and the new zoning map updates your lot to two acre zoning your assessment doesn’t change. The only time the assessment will change is when you decide to change the use of your lot. 


I would ask for your support on updating the town zoning. If you have any questions please reach out to the planning board or myself to get the answers. 


We are having a public meeting on the zoning amendments on February 4 at 6:30 in the Grange, and I encourage all to come.
