New Hampshire is comprised of nine Regional Planning Commissions (RPCs) and each represent a unique association of local governments that provide comprehensive planning services to meet the diverse needs of the geographic region they serve.
The traditional role of RPCs was to plan for the physical development of the areas they served. This involved planning issues such as land use, transportation, and natural resource protection. While this function has continued to be important, additional program responsibilities have been added, including technical assistance in such areas as economic development, grant and loan services, reviewing developments of regional impact and compiling housing needs assessments.
Join Nathan Miller, AICP, Deputy Executive Director with the Southern New Hampshire RPC, and Stephen C. Buckley, Esq., NHMA’s Legal Services Counsel and Chair of the New Hampshire Association of RPCs (NHARPC), who will outline the strategic partnerships and current program of work of the RPCs on behalf of their member communities, and by extension, all cities and towns across New Hampshire.
This webinar is open to NHMA members and is of interest to all municipal officials and employees and members of the New Hampshire Association of Regional Planning Commissions.
