Board of Selectmen, Budget Committee & Planning Board Minutes Calendar


The Zoning Board of Adjustments will be meeting for a work session on Thursday, July 30, 2020 at 7pm at the Danbury Town Hall, 23 High Street.

The Danbury Town Hall will reopen to the public on Monday, June 15, 2020.


The following Standard Operating Procedures will be in effect until further notice. These practices are based upon public health guidelines and are designed to keep both our employees and the public safe.

  • There will be only one entrance point to the Town Hall at the clearly marked green door on the side of the building.
  • Traffic in the building will be one way with floor markers to maintain 6 feet of social distancing.
  • Plexiglass guards have been installed at each of the high-traffic counters.
  • Face masks are not required but are highly recommended. If you do not have a face mask, one will be available once inside the building.
  • Common areas will be disinfected frequently, which includes but is not limited to: door handles, doorknobs, table tops and restrooms.
  • Do not come to the Town Hall if you are sick or have been in contact with someone with a confirmed case of the COVID-19 virus.
  • Please bring your own pen.

In order to minimize foot traffic in the Town Hall, to maximize social distancing and to reduce the risk of exposure to both residents and employees, we strongly encourage residents to continue to process property tax payments, registration renewals, dog license renewals and vital record requests by mail, the outside lock box or by using the online tools on the town website, www.townofdanburynh.com.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation. Working together we hope to have a safe and healthy reopening.

Old Danbury NH

Danbury was not an original colonial grant, but was formed from part of the town of Alexandria to the north. In 1794, a group of Alexandria residents petitioned the state legislature to separate Alexandria into two towns due to the inconvenience of having a mountain divide the town, making it difficult for all the residents to gather in a single place.

The petition was granted in 1795, and the lower piece was incorporated as Danbury in that year. The name was suggested by a settler from Danbury, Connecticut. Later more land was added to Danbury from Hill and Wilmot.

In 1800 there were 165 people in Danbury, which on July 10, 1874 was transferred from Grafton County to Merrimack County. Today there are close to 1,300 people in Danbury.
