Shall the Town of Hampton vote to raise and appropriate the sum of $246,500 for the purpose of
replacing the Eaton Park Culvert and the associated Arch Pipe Culvert crossing under Park Avenue
to Kid's Kingdom Parking Lot as the existing Eaton Park culvert is deteriorated and safety
improvements into Kid's Kingdom need to be made; and for the replacement of a major existing
24" drainage culvert under Park Avenue with two culverts to provide adequate flow for the drainage
received from the area of High Street, Towle Avenue, Academy Avenue, Tuck Field, Park Avenue,
and Winnacunnet Road, as the current culverts are undersized and deteriorated, causing drainage
obstructions and reduced flows and cannot be constructed as a larger sized culvert without
interfering with an adjacent sewer main. The sum shall be used for the engineering, design,
permitting, and construction of the culverts. This shall be a non-lapsing appropriation per RSA
32:7, VI and shall not lapse until the culverts are installed or by March 1, 2022, whichever is sooner?
