GRA polls show some interesting trends 

GOFFSTOWN - In April of this year, the Goffstown Residents Association added a weekly poll to its website in search of input from residents on a variety of topics and issues.

So far, the results of these polls are showing some interesting trends....


  •  75% of residents rated the quality of education in Goffstown as only fair or average;
  •  82% of residents want the school board to move its meetings to another night of the week so as not to conflict with meetings of the board of selectmen.


  •  77% of residents were against spending an additional $98,000 to add the granite curbs and cobblestone to the Grasmere roundabout;
  •  82% of residents want monies for paving Snook, Tenney and Willow Pond roads to be used to repair damage to Goffstown's existing roads instead;

The town's deteriorating roads rank second among Goffstown's most important issues.

The top concern among residents, not surprisingly, is the issue of rising property taxes, yet 85% of them rate the performance of the new board of selectmen as good, very good or excellent.

The GRA will continue to poll residents on topics and issues every Friday throughout the year.  We welcome your suggestions for our future polls.  To submit your idea, please send an email to GRA@goffstownresidentsassociation.com .
