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? (Majority vote required)

infrastructure that the Public works department has deemed necessary. It does drain a good portion of the town to the north and comes down through Tuck field and affects the parking lot near the town commons area and the adjacent playground. The system is in need of replacement that includes pipe enlargement. Some safety issues have been raised as well as the pipe travels under Park avenue and eventually drains to the marsh. I support this effort.
