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). All Class VI roads are now considered subject to gates & bars, even if not designated so. If a road is discontinued subject to gates & bars at town meeting, the town retains its easement but ceases maintenance. The town also continues to regulate the use of the road and abutting property. A 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.
