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.

Transportation Improvement Program and Air Quality Conformity Analysis Determination

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a staged multi-year program of regional transportation improvement projects scheduled for implementation in the Strafford Metropolitan Planning Organization (SMPO) area. It is prepared by the SMPO in accordance with joint federal metropolitan planning regulations, 23 CFR 450, issued by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA), U.S. Department of Transportation. The projects identified are prioritized by year and have been selected for funding, as jointly agreed upon by the SMPO and the NHDOT.

The TIP must include all transportation projects within the SMPO area proposed for federal funding under Title 23 or the Federal Transit Act, as well as any regionally significant project that will require a federal action. Federally funded transportation projects that do not appear on the TIP may not continue towards implementation. Projects listed on the TIP must be consistent with the MPO's Transportation Plan, and the TIP itself must be found to conform to the state's SIP (the State Implementation Plan for air quality attainment). Under conformity rules, "consistent with" the transportation plan is interpreted to mean that TIP projects must be specifically recommended in the Plan.

The SMPO TIP is prepared by the staff of the Strafford Regional Planning Commission (SRPC) and is reviewed and endorsed by the SMPO Technical Advisory (TAC). Final TIP endorsement is received from the SMPO Policy Committee.
