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.

Hazard Mitigation


Strafford Regional Planning Commission assists communities with the development of local hazard mitigation plans. Every community has an adopted plan developed through their Local Hazard Mitigation Committee. These plans identify past natural and man-made hazard events, community assets and risks, potential damages, resources and strategies to mitigate losses from hazard events.

Current Projects

Updates to the Barrington, New Durham, Rollinsford and Somersworth Hazard Mitigation Plans

In FY2016 and FY2017 SRPC is working to update Barrington, New Durham, and Somersworth Hazard Mitigation plans. The Rollinsford and Somersworth Hazard Mitigation Plans were recently updated and approved by FEMA.

Past Projects

Hazard Mitigation Plans

Beginning in 2008, Strafford Regional Planning Commission started to assist municipalities with the update of their local hazard mitigation plans. These updates ensured that all communities participating in the process would continue to be eligible for federal funding for disaster relief. Natural hazards in Strafford Regional Planning Commission area include floods, hurricanes, Nor'easters, ice storms, wildfires, droughts, and earthquakes.

Mitigation actions are the responsibility of individuals, businesses and industries, state, local and federal governments. As of November 2014, all communities within the Strafford Region have a FEMA approved Hazard Mitigation Plan.

Emergency Management and Public Safety Appendix

Strafford Regional Planning Commission, along with the other nine regional planning commissions, was awarded funding through Nashua Regional Planning Commission's HUD Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant. This funding supported the update of Strafford's 2005 A Quality Improvement Plan (New Regional Master Plan Policies and Implementation Strategies for the Year 2020). The Emergency Management and Public Safety Appendix was a component of the 2015 Regional Master Plan.

The purpose of the Emergency Management and Public Safety Appendix is to provide an overview of the interconnected infrastructure network that provides the foundation for emergency management and response to natural and human-caused events.

This appendix is intended to serve as an informational resource to support emergency management. The emergency prepartation and response guidance included in this appendix supplements lcoal hazard mitigation plans and current emergency management processes. This appendix also provides strategies to increase resiliency and effective emergency management, through collaboration across sectors and the region.
