PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) - A plan to build an outdoor skating rink at New Hampshire’s Strawbery Banke Museum has won final approval.

The Historic District Commission in Portsmouth recently approved the proposal.

The Portsmouth Herald reports (https://bit.ly/Si4ken) the approval comes two months after the city’s Planning Board voted in favor of it.

In January, the proposal was upheld by a judge after neighbors challenged the proposal, saying they were concerned about noise and light pollution.

The project calls for building a pond-like structure that would be open for three months in the winter. The rink would offer skating lessons, family and community skate times and pick-up hockey games.



Strawbery Banke officials hope to open the rink in December.
