Yes, strings attached: Goffstown land in limbo
The “Round House,” at 9 Church St. in Goffstown, is located on one of five parcels that residents Raymond and Vivian Blondeau want to donate to the town.

On Monday afternoon before the selectmen's June 24 meeting, property owners Raymond and Vivian Blondeau sent a letter to the board saying the donated land must be used for town or community purposes only, not commercial use.
In closing, the Blondeaus said they are open to discussing the precise terms of this restriction with the town.
"We hope this won't derail things and we can move forward," said Adams. "Our understanding, it was no strings attached and the town would pull a committee to examine the possibilities and either use the parcels for municipal use or swap for other parcels."
Now, the board may have to hold more public hearings on the issue, which could delay the decision to accept the property by six or more weeks, Adams said.
The Board of Selectmen may discuss the matter at its next meeting on Monday, July 1, at 6 p.m. at Goffstown Town Hall, Room 106.
