If you notice something in or on a Wilmot Town Road that needs attention, please contact the Highway Department.

Class VI Roads

Class VI roads are public highways that are not maintained by the town, but are the responsiblity of abutting property owners to maintain. In Wilmot these public roads were laid out in the 19th century and fell into disuse as the population shrank and farms disappeared. By statute, they become Class VI roads either through an article at town meeting or after the town does not maintain them for five years (RSA 229:5, VII). At town meeting, they may be entirely discontinued, which means the town gives up its easement, or they may be discontinued subject to gates & bars (RSA 231:45). In the latter case, the town retains its easement but ceases maintenance. Any landowner who wished to build on a Class VI road must go through an application process that involves both the select board and the planning board. Not all applications will be approved.
