Based on what I hear from talking to a planning board participant and from the minutes, 2015 saw a fair amount of construction. Apparently there are a lot of approved subdivisions with roads and septic plans, where the original subdivision requests went through before the housing downturn, and now that the market is back up, the builders are making up for lost time.

It does seem like there's a lot of people, often priced out of Bedford, looking at nearby communities for suburban/rural housing stock.

It is nearly an exurban area to Manchester, more commuters live there- higher median home prices and median household income. A sizable increase in equalized tax rate over the past several years as well. I would look further west of New Boston, further into the Monadnock region. Sometimes high speed internet varies with how rural you are and cell phone signals can be spotty in rugged areas there.

Wink Off Grid? Heck, these towns have both kinds of Internet -- DSL and 4G.

New Boston is rarely in the news, only recent article on the town is about the city and police being sued in relation to sexual harassment. Tough to encourage somebody to move when the town could be facing a big payout.

In terms of tax rate, you want your neighbors to have higher priced homes with lots of bells and whistles, keeps the taxes on your little shack that much lower. The problem comes when your rich Burlington, Mass. commuter neighbors start to try and vote in the amenities they miss from MA, like trash pickup and a full-time police force.

Mont Vernon and New Boston are becoming popular "in the countryside" places to raise families, this drives up the tax rates even though they are far enough out from the highway not to be as attractive to 3/93 commuters as Bedford.

Cell coverage maps are getting more detailed, but signal strength varies over time (usually better right now with the leaves off most trees, worse in the spring). If you need high-speed Internet (e.g. for work), don't just assume because Fairpoint or Comcast says an address is prequalified that you will actually be able to get service!

If you actually want to go off grid you'll need to go at least one town "further out", look at Lyndeborough, Weare, etc. Depends on how far off you want to go, all these "exurb" towns have parts that are pretty darn rural, not far outside the "town square" you can find unpaved roads and working farms. Once you get outside the "compact area", nobody cares if you raise chickens or livestock (unless you're in a subdivision with CC&Rs).

When a town becomes populated enough that the wait on Saturday at the town dump or transfer station becomes noticeable it is time for municipal trash collection and disposal. Londonderry instituted this decades ago and this is one of the "amenities" I am willing to support.

New Boston is a quiet town with a great sense of community. A co worker of mine grew up there and then convinced her husband to buy her child hood home to raise her own family in the town.

Gotta wonder if La Cabana Mexican Grill was having other issues, if this was all it takes to shut down?

Wink "Sliders" new owner, new restaurant on site of "La Cabana"

I think I called it on La Cabana; new owner closed before the raid, and already has a sign up for a new restaurant, "Sliders".

Owner Tom L’Heureux says the restaurant, named Sliders, will open at 737 River Road in early to mid-July.

L’Heureux said his purchase of the restaurant was finalized in late May, before federal agents raided La Cabana on June 8.
