Looking for NH land
« on: October 29, 2003, 10:33:22 am »

Looking to buy 2 - 10 acres of land in NH.

Must have no restrictions which would prevent the building of a dome home ( http://www.aidomes.com ), must be on the electric grid, no homeowners associations (or other such deed restrictions).

Owner must be willing to accept monthly payments.

Good luck building a dome home, it may not be a conforming structure(per the local planning boards)  I live in a small town(Deering) witch is 30 minutes west of concord and 45 mins NW of Manchester. I would like it if as many Fsp'ers moved here as possible and that way we could take over the town on the local board level and fix it so a dome home would be no problhem. you people planning to move to NH MUST REALIZE that everything happens on the local level here in NH,, meaning if the town wants it the town gets it no matter what. for example: if you want to do away with the poilce department and replace it with the constitutional law enforcment official(the town constible) you come to the annual town meeting vote (in masse as a voting block)and make the change. the key to NH is town by town the state has very little control over what the locals may do ;)

Yeah, that's why I mentioned no restrictions like that.

Hopefully I can find a place without such zoning/planning restrictions.

This is the second thread this post seems appropriate for:


Appealing to a town's voters with socially beneficial effects of underground and dome housing (environmental and energy conservation) could get people on our side. Unique housing solutions like co-housing which might be banned under "large lot" zoning (multi-family housing being zoned out) could be offered as a solution to the problem of few low-cost housing units. If porcupines build a private school (or homeschool) this will reduce the burden on the local town as well. According to CAIRE that's one reason for so-called "large lot" zoning. From their front page:

Welcome to NH's Very own "little shop of horrors"

- A Socio-Economic Class Cleansing Program in disguise -

ACROSS THE NATION - the building of housing is severely restricted by "open space" laws, severe zoning ordinances and draconian environmentalist rules. Meanwhile, the building of apartments is made unprofitable by rent control.

IN NEW HAMPSHIRE - Unfair and discriminatory property taxes for education dollars has contributed to the shortage of affordable housing, has increased poverty, and homelessness.
Local officials know that more housing means more children to educate and higher property taxes. The cheaper the housing, the greater the imbalance between the taxes paid by the housing compared to the public cost generated by the housing so NH has large lot zoning (which zones out multifamily housing) that makes affordable housing impossible. NH has in a sense zoned nearly the entire state against children because of the fear of higher property taxes.  

This combined with an overall NIMBY (Not in my backyard attitude) and a populace at large in a general state of denial, with a dysfunctional and inept legislative body at the beck and call of its notoriously corrupt judicial branch at the helm, has created a population of refugees forced to migrate to areas of NH, and sometimes beyond, where subsidized shelter of any kind might be available.  

More and more dollars for education under the guise of "Its for the children" + oppressive, unfair and discriminatory property taxes = large lot zoning = less affordable housing = less industry = higher and higher prices = more and more working homeless and homeless = more and more people living in poverty." Because administrative bureaucracies at all levels, town, county and state often set up spending questions in ways which pit different interest groups against each other because the bureaucrats biggest fear is that if too many "feud" groups combine, they will have to change their ways of doing business. Deeper and wider this sinkhole grows and when and where it's going to stop nobody really knows.
