Road Name Changes

During 2003 the Pelham Board of Selectmen held several legally posted/advertised public hearings at which name changes to 25 Town roads were discussed and voted upon. These road name changes were based on resolving "sound-alike" or confusing road name and house numbering issues identified by former Chiefs Fisher and Haglund and by the New Hampshire Department of Safety, Bureau of Communications (E-911). The following roads were among those determined to change at one or more of these public hearings. The Board of Selectmen has asked the current Highway Safety Committee, (Police Chief, Fire Chief, Planning Director and Road Agent) to implement these road name changes in the interest of protecting public safety. 

Below you will find a chart with a list of affected roads, their new name, and the date of the BOS public hearing. Minutes of the public hearings are available on the Town website or from the Selectmen's office. As the chart indicates, all name changes will become effective on July 1, 2008. During the week of June 16th, those affected will receive a letter from the Post Office informing you of your new address at which time you should follow the address change instruction provided with that notice. Those instructions will describe the process of notifying your correspondents of your address change and will include cars you can use for that purpose along with information on the simple process of updating your new address on driver's licenses, passports, etc. This re-addressing process will not require any changes to deeds, plot plans, easements, etc. since those documents are referenced by Map and Lot number, not by street address.

 Address Change Process for E911 Road Name and Number Changes

During the week of June 16th each affected resident will be sent a letter from the USPS containing instructions on notification of your correspondents, creditors, etc. No action should be taken by residents to change their addressed prior to receipt of that letter. Doing so would create confusion and the Post Office mail forwarding process would be hampered.

The USPS package will contain:

bullet

Your exact new address (road name is determined but 50 foot increment numbering is not yet completed);

bullet

A small supply of address change cards (additional cards available at Post Office);

bullet

A letter explaining how to use the enclosed address change cards and specifics on displaying your house on your mail-        box;

bullet

Driver's license change forms;

bullet

Note that after the effective date of July 1, 2008, the Post Office will automatically reroute your mail to your new address     for a full year. It should take much less than a year for the change to filter through the system.

What you will need to do:

bullet

To notify friends, family and other correspondents, send them a name change card.

bullet

To notify creditors, fill out the address change section that comes with your monthly bill. If you pay your bills online there     will be an option for changing your billing address.

bullet

To change your driver's license address, send in one of the yellow change request forms which will be included in the         June USPS letter. This form can be mailed to the Concord DOT, or dropped off at the Salem registry. This form is         required to be completed and mailed within 10 days of the July 1, 2008 effective date. To show this change on your         actual driver's license, the DMV says you can simply correct the address in permanent marker on the back of your         license or affix a small label with the corrected address. There is no charge for the DMV address change.

bullet

To change a passport, pencil in your new address. Since passports are issued for 10 years, they anticipate relocation             of holders and provide a pace for changes.

bullet

The Town will update your address for tax purposes internally with no requirement for you to take any action.

bullet

There is no need to change the address on deeds, permits, etc. The Planning Department relies on tax map and lot     numbers and the registry of deeds relies on book and page numbers independent of your street address.
