N.H. Fish and Game Department to Hold Biennial Public Hearings;
November 18 Fish and Game Commission Meeting to be Held in Lancaster
CONCORD, N.H. – The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department will hold two biennial hearings in November, giving the general public an opportunity to offer input on any aspect of Department operations. The two sessions will be held:
- Tuesday, November 17, 2009, at 6:30 p.m. at Fish and Game headquarters, 11 Hazen Drive, in Concord, N.H.; and
- Wednesday, November 18, 2009, at 6:30 p.m. at Fish and Game’s Region 1 Office on Route 3 (629B Main Street) in Lancaster, 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.
Those who are unable to attend the hearings may send written comments or suggestions by November 30, 2009: 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.
The New Hampshire Fish and Game Commission also announced a change of location for its next monthly meeting. The November 18, 2009, Commission meeting will be held at 6:00 p.m. at Fish and Game’s Region 1 Office on Route 3 (629B Main Street) in Lancaster, N.H., just prior to the Biennial Hearing.
