REGIONAL PLAN


A Plan for the NRPC Region
Regional_Plan_Cover_Pic
Adopted in December 2014, the Nashua Regional Plan recognizes the value of regional planning to the well-being and development of municipalities and is developed in accordance with state legislation requiring the creation of comprehensive development plan for the region (NH RSA 36:45).

Throughout several chapters (see links on the right) issues such as land use, transportation, economic development, infrastructure, housing, public health, energy, and cultural, historic, and natural resources are addressed. This Plan serves as a resource to assist communities with making decisions related to these issues, and can be used during their development of local Master Plans.

The Plan provides an accurate and impartial portrait of demographic trends and the various existing conditions in the region and offers goals and strategies for moving forward based on that information as well as a vast body of public input gathered over a two year period. The documents that catalogue the outreach and additional resources are found below.

Statewide Research 

A Granite State Future was a 3-year (2012-2014) community-based program starting with a public dialogue about the future of our communities, our regions, and our state. It culminated with an update of the regional plans in each of New Hampshire's nine planning regions, including the Nashua Region.

The staff of New Hampshire's nine regional planning commissions (RPCs) worked with a range of community and business leaders, state agencies, counties and municipalities, and non-profits and citizen groups to develop a productive public dialogue within each region. Supported by New Hampshire-based resources and technical support, A Granite State Future was designed to be a product of the people of New Hampshire in recognition that better public decisions are made when everyone affected participates in the process.
