Priorities at Parks and Recreation

Should New Hampshire upgrade the facilities at Hampton Beach next year, or spread the project over three years? The Union Leader weighs in this morning on its Editorial Page:

Local business owners want the state to do the entire $18 million project next year. The state Division of Parks and Recreation, which says the plan is its top capital project, wants to spread the costs and the project over three years.

Parks and Recreation cites the state budget as the reason to draw the project out. With an expected $250 million deficit this year and possibly twice that in the next budget, the state cannot justify an $18 million project right now, Parks and Recreation says.

That's the right thinking.
