Regional Plans

Through Granite State Future, the regional planning commissions were presented with the opportunity to utilize a collaborative approach to regional planning, share resources, and prepare and update regional plans as required by NH RSA 36:45.  Each region has over the course of the last three years developed its own independent regional plan that addresses local needs for housing, economic development, transportation, and the environment.  



Statewide Research

The nine regions and their many partners teamed up to collaboratively develop statewide research that was common to all regions and provided essential background information.  Products included an Existing Conditions and Trends Assessment, Regional Plan Framework, common planning metrics, climate change studies, a large scale survey, equity and engagement checklist for planners and results of statewide public engagement efforts.

Planning Metrics

The Common Metrics Methodologies document lists and details the data computation methodologies for various metrics of common benefit to local, regional and state master plans based upon the initial research of the TASCs. Excel based data is available to download for all metrics.  GIS data has been integrated into an online viewer hosted by GRANIT.
