Public input sought on potential improvements to NH's welcome centers and rest areas
Members of the public from around the Granite State are being asked to weigh in on a study of the state's 16 welcome centers.
The public input sessions will be held at different locations around the state during the month of December, with the final meeting scheduled for Jan. 5.
The state Department of Transportation and the Department of Resources and Economic Development want to assess traveler needs, identify needed improvements and develop a plan for the rest areas and welcome centers throughout the state.
In particular, they want to hear from the public about how these facilities affect the local and regional communities. The plan is to have the study completed by June 2016.

Dec. 1, 5:30 to 7 p.m., N.H. Department of Transportation office, 7 Hazen Drive, Concord
Dec. 3, from 3:30 to 5 p.m. at the Southwest Regional Planning Commission office, 37 Ashuelot St., Keene.
