With mixed reviews and concerns about the environmental and communal impacts, Woodmont Commons in Londonderry has been a hot topic at Planning Board meetings. During the last public hearing, advocates for the project discussed the fiscal impacts of the project. April Guilment, correspondent for the Union Leader, highlights the meeting.

LONDONDERRY— An analysis of Woodmont Commons, the 300-acre village community being proposed alongside Interstate 93, suggests the project could bring in annual tax revenues of more than $5 million once it reaches the 20-year buildout.

During the latest in a series of many public hearings, Lucy Gallo, principal with the Development Planning and Finance Group (DPFG), shared details of the project’s recently completed fiscal impact analysis during Wednesday night’s Londonderry Planning Board meeting.

Attorney Ari Pollack, who represents project developers Pillsbury Realty Development, LLC, said the development team would be back before the Planning Board on July 10.

During next month’s meeting, the developers plan on discussing the site’s development standards, and Pollack said he’s hoping “to have some action taken that night.”
