Road associations allow residents to have one voice in communication with the Town and vice versa. They provide a centralized decision-making forum, open lines of communication among property owners/abutters on the road, legitimize the collection of members’ dues, set up an impartial means for managing association monies, and establish a legal authority. This is the most effective and simple way for continued winter services to work. Road associations will need to provide annual notice to the Town of their designated contact’s information. A change of directors does not constitute registry action, just simply provide a copy of the Directors to the Town each year. Individual properties are not required by the town to have a separate filing in the registry concerning the road association.
