Clement stressed the plan is only a draft at this point, one the governor and Legislature will finalize later.

“It’s very much a working document,” the commissioner said.

Throughout the session officials acknowledged the state is operating under financial constraints that will make funding projects a challenge.

“We’ve got to be very smart about this and very resourceful,” said Executive Councilor Chris Pappas, D-Manchester, who represents Londonderry.

Pappas also underscored the economic importance of the funding decisions.

“We’re talking about jobs that come along with these projects,” Pappas said.

About two dozen people attended the hearing at the town offices.

It’s one of about two dozen scheduled throughout the state in the next few weeks.

Another hearing will be held Wednesday, Sept. 25, at 7 p.m. at the Derry Municipal Center.
