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.

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

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