Welcome to the Official Town of Meredith Website

The need has long been evident for an easily accessible source of information about Town government and the diverse resources in our community. We’re delighted to make this start at last.

You can find who’s who in Meredith government, what they do and are doing and how to contact them. You can find minutes of meetings, the text of recent laws and downloadable forms related to building permits and subdivisions. You can learn about our community, its organizations and its history. And you can click through a directory of businesses and professional services provided by Meredith residents.

This website–funded in part by the O’Connor Foundation–is a work in progress. The content will keep changing in order to stay up to date and respond to the wishes of our residents.
