Redevelopment team remains committed to Balsams

Although voting after midnight in the 2020 presidential primary is now a go in Dixville Notch, New Hampshire, a redevelopment project for the hotel it’s been associated with remains less certain.

A project spokesman for The Balsams Grand Resort said Friday there is no timeline for securing financing or beginning the work.

The plan to redevelop the resort, closed since 2011, included building condominiums, an open-air marketplace, a 400-room hotel and Nordic Spa, as well as quadrupling the Wilderness Ski Area, the Caledonian Record reported.

Without a buyer for the $28 million bond, a key piece of financing according to developers, the project will not be entered as a formal request to the county commission and delegation.

The redevelopment team remains committed to the project.

“Be assured, we continue to work on it and the vision remains the same –- to create a true, four-season destination resort that will attract local, national and international visitors alike,” spokesman Scott Tranchemontagne said.

For years, voting in the primary and general elections just after midnight was held in the hotel. In recent years, voting has been in other buildings on the property.
