Residents discuss Hooksett Village
Another issue Hawk said needs to be addressed, is that residents seem interested in preserving the historic nature of the village while at the same time resisting increased zoning regulations that would do just that.
To that end, Hawk recommended during his presentation that the town improve the village’s pedestrian access by installing sidewalks, cross walks, and traffic control measures, improve access and scenic views of the river, provide educational offerings about the village, ensure buildings in the village are reasonably maintained and allow for more businesses to open in the area surrounding Robie’s.
“We need to give the area more of a sense of destination,” Hawk said.
“It is always good to discuss what residents want out of their town,” he said.
However, not all in attendance were in agreement that anything needed to be done with the village. Bernadette Chevrette, 89, said she has lived in Hooksett all her life and that nothing should be done involving the village because it might result in it changing.
