HOST COMMUNITY AGREEMENT

 

 

At the rate at which the landfill is being filled, it is projected that full capacity will be reached in March 2021. Today, the landfill contributes over $1.1 million in benefits to the Town of Bethlehem. If the landfill were filled and no new agreement reached, all benefits to the Town would cease to exist. Bethlehem would lose the revenue from the landfill, the household collection service for trash and recycling, the convenience of the drop-off center on Trudeau Road, and community contributions.

APPROPRIATIONS

 

Bethlehem was first established in 1774 as Lloyd’s Hill, the last of the provincial land grants. This was probably because James Lloyd, for whom the town was named, was a loyalist. Voters elected to change the name to Bethlehem following the Revolution. This was done on the last Christmas Day of the century and the town was so incorporated on December 27, 1799. Bethlehem is nestled in the beautiful White Mountain Region, “The North Country”, surrounded by National Forests and pristine natural beauty, just north of Franconia Notch. The town is a superb destination for year-round outdoor sports and activities and offers a perfect base for visitors to the many nearby White Mountain attractions.
