N.H. Fish and Game Biennial Public Hearings Set
December 10, 2013- Lancaster; December 11, 2013 - Concord
CONCORD, N.H. -- The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department will hold two biennial hearings in December, giving the general public an opportunity to offer input on any aspect of Department operations. The two sessions will be held:
- Tuesday, December 10, 2013, at 6:00 p.m. at N.H. Fish and Game’s Region 1 Office on Route 3 (629B Main Street) in Lancaster, N.H., and
- Wednesday, December 11, 2013, at 6:00 p.m. at N.H. Fish and Game headquarters, 11 Hazen Drive, in Concord, N.H.
“We welcome hunters, anglers and others who care about wildlife in New Hampshire to attend one of these biennial hearings and share your ideas about how we can serve you better,” said Glenn Normandeau, Executive Director of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department.
Biennial hearings are held in odd-numbered years to provide the public with an opportunity to comment on and suggest changes to fishing and hunting rules, wildlife management strategies and other Fish and Game functions. Members of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Commission, Executive Director Normandeau and other Fish and Game staff will be present at the hearings to answer questions.
Please note that the Department will not make any proposals for changes to hunting or fishing rules at the biennial hearings. Public hearings on the new hunting season rules will be held in the spring and are expected to occur in late March/early April 2014. The biennial hearings are broader in scope, allowing the public to comment on any aspect of the Department’s operations, without the urgency of specific proposals.
Those who are unable to attend the hearings may send written comments or suggestions by December 18, 2013: email to firstname.lastname@example.org (put “biennial hearings” as the subject line); or write to: Executive Director, N.H. Fish and Game Department, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, NH 03301; or fax (603) 271-1438.
As the guardian of the state's fish, wildlife and marine resources, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department works in partnership with the public to:
* Conserve, manage and protect these resources and their habitats;
* Inform and educate the public about these resources; and
* Provide the public with opportunities to use and appreciate these resources.
