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.

The Dredge is Complete!
The Commissioners would like to thank every resident for their patience during this year's inlet dredge and lake drawdown. We are happy to announce that the work is done and we've begun to raise the lake back to summer levels. The amount of rain we see in the next few weeks will determine how quickly we can add boards back to the dam. Once all of the boards have been added and the water level tops the dam, the BOC will re-float the swimming platforms at the beaches.

There will be a resident organized Potluck Lunch at Eastman Park on Saturday, September 5th. The fun starts at 2PM! Please contact Dee at 464-4043 for more information. We hope to see you there!

The BOC would like to remind all property owners that dogs MUST be leashed and restrained at Eastman Park, Emerald Beach, and Hummingbird Beach. Dogs cannot be off leash for any reason. Off-leash dogs are ONLY permitted at Meetinghouse Beach and when no other beach visitors are present.

FOUND - ABANDONED WATERCRAFT

USE OF WATER REMINDER
Unattended watering of plants/lawns, underground watering systems, and filling of pools using treated tap water is prohibited. The use of lake water by lake front residents is encouraged.
BEACH RAFTS - SUMMER of 2015
From: The Board of Commissioners
All swimming platforms are in the water. Please do not move any raft's location or pull up a raft anchor. The lower lake level necessitates the rafts be placed farther from shore this year to provide approximately 10-15 feet of water depth around the platform.
