Allenstown, NH is located along the proposed route for the Northern Pass (NPT) line, the transmission line in Allenstown will be:
Photo simulations were created to show what the Northern Pass line will look like from locations where people would potentially see it. These photo simulations were produced by Terrence J. DeWan & Associates, a professional landscape architecture and planning firm in Yarmouth, Maine, known for their work on visual impact assessments throughout New England.
Proposed 345-kV: Minimum = 110 ft, Maximum = 160 ft, Most Common* = 130 ft
Existing Structures: Minimum = 48 ft, Maximum = 88 ft, Most Common* = 74 & 75 ft
*Most common structure height refers to the structure height occurring with the greatest frequency.
NPT Property Value: $22.4 million
Town’s 2014 Total Equalized Estimated Property Value: $255.9 million
NPT’s Percent of Total Property Value: 8%
Estimated First Year Property Tax Payments (range**): $443,056 - $848,069
* Actual taxes paid will depend on the Fair Market Value of NPT property in the community, government spending levels, other sources of revenue, and the tax base, over time.
** Ranges are based on the high and low of simulations using New Hampshire Department of Revenue reported actual equalized 2014 New Hampshire tax rates (municipal plus local education), tax base, and spending levels, and applying different growth rates, and a range for estimated NPT cost in each community.
