Plant a tree; grow a life! #ConcordNH needs your help to plant more #trees to help restore our canopies, purify our air quality, increase biodiversity, and beautify the city. Our Sustainable Tree Program plants trees for residents who are interested in investing in a tree to improve the city’s quality of life. Learn more about the City of Concord’s Sustainable Tree Program and contact our tree crew at www.concordnh.gov/treeprogram to request to plant a tree.

Who's ready for some #football?! We are! Last spring, our Public Properties Division renovated the Warren H. Doane Diamond #baseball stadium press box at Memorial Field. This year, Public Properties staff focused upgrades on the football stadium. Approximately 1,200 pieces of lumber were removed from the bleachers and replaced with new Southern Yellow Pine boards. The bleachers were in need of upgrading since the lumber was over 15 years old. In addition to replacing the seating and walkway boards, the front and sides of the press box were repainted, the entry stairs were rebuilt and refurbished, and the portable benches in the vicinity were also rebuilt and painted. We hope the community will enjoy the football stadium and Memorial Field a bit more this season – just in time for football!

Electrical repairs at the Capital Commons #Parking Garage have been substantially completed and the City of #ConcordNH is pleased to announce that the garage is once again open to the public at normal operation hours: 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.

While the #electrical system is being put back into service, approximately 20% of the lighting throughout the #garage remains damaged from last week’s lightning strike and will be repaired in the coming days. However, the elevator is fully operational, as are pay stations (kiosks).

While this weekend’s closure of the garage was unfortunate to repair the electrical system, the City was able to make the most of the situation by sweeping the garage and refreshing all pavement markings.

Lastly, the City is especially grateful to R & T Electric of Concord, New Hampshire, for their dedicated staff who worked diligently to get the electrical and related systems repaired as quickly as possible.

The Capital Commons Municipal #Parking Garage was struck by #lightning yesterday afternoon, which resulted in extensive damage to the facility’s electrical systems (as shown in the picture). As a result, the garage currently has no electricity. It is anticipated that it will take several days to make the necessary repairs in order to restore electricity to the garage.

Currently, the City of #ConcordNHplans   to keep the garage open to the public. However, the garage will only be open between the hours of 6:00AM and 7:00PM until further notice since interior lighting is not operational. The elevator will also not be operational until further notice. We thank you for your patience.

The City of #ConcordNH introduced a unit-based #trash pricing program in 2009 called the “Pay-As-You-Throw Program” to encourage residents to produce less trash and to minimize the environmental impact of solid waste. The Pay-As-You-Throw Program (#PAYT) is designed to offset City-wide costs of curbside trash collection by allowing Concord residents to avoid having to pay a flat fee for the entire community’s trash disposal, and to rather be in direct control of how much they pay for solid waste services based on how much they throw away each week in the City’s required purple PAYT trash bags.

The Pay-As-You-Throw Program gives residents strong incentive to decrease their waste by reducing, reusing, and recycling more materials. Since the introduction of this program in 2009, trash tonnage has reduced by 40% in Concord. We manage the PAYT Program and have released a video to help residents potentially save money on solid waste services by introducing ideas of diversion, including: increased #recycling efforts, reducing waste disposal, reusing materials, and even #composting.

Learn more about the benefits of unit-based pricing for solid waste and the City’s Pay-As-You-Throw Program at www.concordnh.gov/solidwaste.

Wentworth “Snookie” Emmons worked for our #sewer crew for 45 years. He was our Sewer Systems Supervisor for most of those years until he retired in 1998. EJ Prescott, a supplier of sewer pipe materials, donated a manhole cover to the City of Concord in honor of Snookie’s service. In 1997, our sewer crew dedicated the cover to Snookie (featured in the 1997 photo second from the right) and placed it on the northbound lane of Main Street at Capitol Street.
The cover was pulled off the street for safe-keeping during the Concord Main Street Project construction, This was a good opportunity to refurbish and relocate the cover. On June 18, 2015, Snookie's wife, Joan, and family joined the sewer crew for the rededication of Snookie. Our sewer crew set the refurbished cover in the pedestrian walkway near the Clock Tower, instead of in the street as before where it was more susceptible to damage. Everyone reminisced about Snookie, who passed away in December of 2011.
Snookie’s family will keep a good eye on this cover for generations to come and our future sewer crew will also keep it in good care. The next time you stroll down the newly constructed Main Street, take a walk near Eagle Square and the Clock Tower. You will notice the manhole cover with yellow and black trim honoring Snookie. ‪#‎ThrowbackThursday‬ #tbt

#NH Department of Transportation did a great job completing emergency repair work and returning Interstate 93 to full service within 12 hours of Wednesday's ‪#‎sinkhole‬, but unfortunately the storm water drain underneath I-93 became effectively retired upon repairs. Our crews established new drainage connections yesterday after assessing the impacts with the City Engineer of losing an existing culvert that provided drainage outlet to the Merrimack River. New drainage connections were made to existing nearby culverts under I-93 to maintain the City's storm water drainage system. We are very fortunate to have these drainage connections nearby to redirect the community's storm water.
Sinkhole on I-93 required storm drain runoff shift in Downtown Concord; collapsed culvert estimated to be more than a century old.

CAPITAL COMMONS PARKING GARAGE UPDATE

The Capital Commons #Parking Garage will be closed tonight at 7:00PM through Monday, August 10th at 6:00AM for repairs to the electrical system that was damaged by a #lightning strike earlier in the week.

The City of #ConcordNH anticipates the garage to reopen for business on Monday, August 10th at 6:00AM. However, the garage’s elevator may remain out of service until later in the week pending upon a review by technicians on Monday. Once #electricity is restored to the pay station kiosks, parking fees will once again be required.

To make the most out of this unfortunate closure, the City also plans to complete other much needed #maintenance projects within the garage. The City plans to sweep, repaint parking stalls and pavement markings, and perform any other maintenance needs over the weekend, including pressure washing dumpster pads near the Lighting Place and Hermanos Cocina Mexicana Restaurant on Sunday. As a result, the City’s Hills Avenue (“Hermanos”) Parking Lot will be closed at approximately 3:00AM on Sunday, August 9th, and will remain closed until the work is completed later in the day. Dumpsters near Hermanos will be temporarily relocated directly across Hills Avenue from Hermanos for the weekend. Dumpsters in the Lighting Place alley will be relocated to Storrs Street. We thank you for your cooperation as the City works to restore operations.
