Warner Website Addition
A new page has been added to the Warner website for tracking Landuse cases: https://warner.nh.us/landusecases/
This is a work in progress. The purpose of the page is to provide as much information as possible on-line about cases that are before the Landuse boards. As cases come to a conclusion, there will eventually be a separate list to the inactive cases. When the minutes files are made available, the links to them will become active.
To get emails about notices posted on the Warner website, or emergency alerts for Warner, you can sign up at https://warner.nh.us/keep-in-touch/
