Strafford Regional Planning Commission

The CEDS is both a document and a process; it is designed to bring together both private and public sectors to create a roadmap to strengthen regional economies. Strafford Regional Planning Commission (SRPC) will be responsible for developing and implementing a CEDS for Strafford County and the Towns of Brookfield and Wakefield in Carroll County.

The purpose of this web site is to encourage use of the regional ITS architecture and gather feedback so that the architecture is used and continues to reflect the intelligent transportation system vision for the region. Sections provide access to the stakeholders, the transportation systems in the region (the Inventory), the transportation-related functions that are envisioned, and the existing and planned integration opportunities in the region.

Housing is an important concept to consider when planning for the future of the Strafford Region. The main planning document that analyzes housing in the region through a qualitative and quantitative approach is the Strafford Regional Housing Needs Assessment. This document has a required update every five years. The last completed Housing Needs Assessment in the Strafford Region was completed in 2009 with a recent update to occur as part of Local Solutions for the Strafford Region, Strafford RPC's Regional Master Plan. The RSA that states that Regional Planning Commissions are resposible for compiling a Housing Needs assessment is RSA 36:47.

A Fair Housing and Equity Assessment is another guiding document that was drafted as part of Local Solutions for the Strafford Region. This document seeks to illustrate a regional picture of both opportunity and equity in access to affordable or fair housing. Five components that are included in this analysis are the identification and assessment of:

1. Segregated Areas and Areas of Increasing Diversity and/or Racial/Ethnic Integration
2. Racially Concentrated Areas of Poverty
3. Access to Existing Areas of High Opportunities
4. Major Public Investment
5. Fair Housing Issues, Services, and Activities

Strafford Regional Planning Commission also works to stay informed of the projects that statewide and regional housing organizations and nonprofits are working on. Some of these organizations include the NH Housing and Finance Authority (NHHFA), and the Workforce Housing Coalition of the Greater Seacoast among others.
