Nashua makerspace shut down by city

Posted on Thursday, December 15th 2011 at 4:41 p.m.

MakeIt Labs , the hackerspace set up in Nashua earlier this year, has been shut down by the City of Nashua due to various safety concerns.

According to the Nashua Telegraph, hackerspaces sometimes run into issues with city regulators who have difficulty understanding the open, varied nature of a space when compared with traditional manufacturing and service operations.

The lab’s board of directors believe the City is working in good faith with them and hope to eventually reopen.  During their closure, MakeIt Labs will not collect membership dues, but still have rent and utilities obligations, so if you believe in these types of facilities, consider making a donation to the labs to help defray their operating costs.
