DTC’s Exeter Office Street Name Change

As of April 2, 2019 the Town of Exeter will officially change our street name from Windsor Lane to Acadia Lane. We have not moved, but we have a new address, 16 Acadia Lane, Exeter, NH.

As some of you may know there was also a Windsor Lane in Brentwood, NH that was causing confusion for clients and deliveries. The Town heard our concerns and voted for the name change. It is our hope that Google Maps and other electronic address sources will show the new street right away. We recommend you call the office at 778-0686 for directions if you have any trouble.
