Welcome To Emerald Lake Village District!

Located in historic Hillsborough, New Hampshire, USA

Welcome to the Emerald Lake Village District! We have tried to include almost any information you might need on this website and navigation is easy. If you still cannot find what you are looking for, check with our Office listed below.

Emerald Lake Village District (“ELVD”) within the Town of Hillsborough was established in 1979 for the community surrounding Emerald Lake, formerly known as Gould Pond. Originally a subdivision of seasonal homes, it has developed into primary homes for the majority of its residents. ELVD through a Board of Commissioners manages the well based water system, the beaches and recreational areas, and approximately fourteen miles of roads.

ELVD is also a community of people who enjoy the unique advantage of their own lake and beaches, as well as the proximity of Fox Forest, Pat’s Peak for skiing, and access to the shopping and dining available in Hillsborough, while located close to Concord in the southwest part of New Hampshire.

Have you picked up YOUR mail?
Holiday Season is here!
More packages, mail and cards are coming into the post office building yet residents are not regularly picking up their mail...its overflowing out of individual boxes and making it very difficult for our mail handlers to manage. Please make it a point to pick up your mail more often.....if you are a seasonal resident please fill out a form at the town post office so your mail is forwarded to your permanent home ie: your tax bills, water bills, electric bills and so on....mail is piling up and taking up precious space for additional mail and packages.

Winter parking restrictions now in effect until April 15th
From November 1st through April 15th, parking on District Roads is not allowed. Vehicles that block or encroach on the District right-of-way will be towed at the owner's expense.
