Like the other eight regional planning commissions, Nashua Regional Planning Commission (NRPC) is creating its own regional plan based on what the people of our region tell us they want for their future. Throughout our planning process, we will gather the opinions of people who work, visit, and live in our region. The result will be a plan full of information that citizens, businesses, and local governments can use to achieve their goals for their communities. The plan will fulfill the directive of the New Hampshire Legislature that each regional planning commission create a plan for the region’s future.


Get Involved

Everyone is invited to share their opinions by answering a few questions about any town in which they work, live, or visit via our “Add Your Ideas” online survey. The responses to these questions will be put on our website where everyone can access them and will drive our planning process.

Results from NRPC's outreach efforts through the summer and fall of 2012 are summarized in the Outreach Report Handout.

We are currently in the process of coordinating committees on each of the components for the Regional Plan including the Regional Advisory Sub-committee, Transportation, Community and Economic Vitality, Housing, and Natural Resources. For more information on these committees, please refer to our Roles and Responsibilities document.
