About SRPC

Strafford Regional Planning Commission (SRPC) provides communities in our region with tools, support, and information that help plan their development in ways that meet local needs and improve quality of life. We are committed to development that balances economic development with both environmental protection and community well-being.

SRPC has been active in regional planning for over forty years as one of the nine Regional Planning Commissions established by the New Hampshire legislature. Our region is composed of eighteen communities including all thirteen municipalities in Strafford County, three communities in Rockingham County, and two communities in Carroll County. Operating as a political subdivision of the State, SRPC serves an advisory role to local governments and organizations.

Plan Release

Strafford Regional Planning Commission recently released our DRAFT Regional Master Plan, Local Solutions for the Strafford Region on December 5th. December 7th marked the beginning of a 35 day public comment period. We are excited to share the results of the three year master planning effort with our residents, communities, and stakeholders. The DRAFT Telling Our Story (introductory chapter), and nine technical appendices are available on SRPC’s new website, and at every city/town hall and library. SRPC will hold their public hearing on January 7th at 2pm at our office at 150 Wakefield Street, Rochester, NH 03867.  We look forward to any comments that can be submitted via mail, email, or fax. SRPC would like to thank all involved in this massive effort geared towards planning for the future of the region. We are also available to come meet with planning boards, etc. to discuss the plan and answer any questions as time allows.
