What I like best is that the area is still rural.

The Nashua Regional Plan

The Nashua Regional Plan recognizes the value of regional planning to the well-being and development of municipalities and is developed in accordance with state legislation requiring the creation of comprehensive development plan for the region (NH RSA 36:45).  Many issues, problems and opportunities aren’t confined by municipal boundaries.  Transportation networks, housing and economic opportunities, and environmental issues know no borders.  To develop the plan, NRPC pored over a lot of data.  But more importantly, we spent a lot of time talking to residents, businesses, and local and state officials.  The plan provides an accurate and impartial portrait of demographic trends and the various existing conditions in the region and offers goals and strategies for moving forward based on that information as well as a vast body of public input gathered over a two year period.  The plan recognizes that government alone can’t solve problems. Communities work best when citizens themselves are empowered to affect positive change.  In recognizing that the most successful places are those where government works together with members of the business and philanthropic communities and residents of all backgrounds to accomplish shared goals, the planning process engaged with all of those partners to craft regional goals and strategies.
