Heritage Commission

The Heritage Commission consists of five members and five alternates, all of whom are appointed by the Board of Selectmen. In addition there is one ex-officio voting member each from the Board of Selectmen and the Historic District Commission. It was established in 2002 by a vote of Town Meeting. They are a land use Board and advisory in nature. The commission’s immediate goal is to inventory the entire Town for historic and cultural resources as well as assist homeowners in preserving Amherst’s heritage. The commission meets the 2nd Thursday of the month at 7:00 in the Barbara Landry Conference Room of the Amherst Town Hall. The Heritage Commission completed a Historic Resource Survey in 2010 through a grant from the National Park Service and in partnership with the New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources.
