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.

Conservation Planning

Strafford Regional Planning Commission supports efforts to conserve the natural resource values of our coastal watershed lands. To ensure a healthy environment into the future, it is essential that communities identify, retain, and protect the remaining undeveloped lands and waters. These are lands and waters that support the most important of the natural resource values and functions, as established by private individuals, municipalities, and local, regional and national land trusts.

Strafford Regional Planning Commissions works with communities and nonprofits to identify lands and waters, and to develop and implement voluntary and regulatory land conservation strategies. Our priorities are to assist with the protection of land through acquisition and to assist with the regulation of the location, density and design of development in the area.

Land Conservation Plan For New Hampshire's Coastal Watersheds

Watershed diagramThe goal of The Land Conservation Plan for New Hampshire's Coastal Watersheds is to focus conservation on those lands and waters that are most important for conserving living resources -- native plants, animals, and natural communities -- and water quality in the coastal watersheds. The Plan identifies and describes a portfolio of areas that represent the best remaining opportunities to conserve the critical ecological, biological, and water resources of NH's coastal watersheds, and identifies and describes a set of voluntary regulatory land conservation strategies available for protecting these important areas. Where are the most significant areas for focusing conservation resources? Why are the areas so important? And how can communities conserve these areas?
