Update of the Master Plan Vision Chapter: Town of Newmarket

Strafford Regional Planning Commission (SRPC) assisted the Town of Newmarket in preparing an update of the Town’s Vision Chapter of the Master Plan. The process was prepared collaboratively by SRPC and a designated Master Plan subcommittee. SRPC organized and facilitated two visioning forums to solicit comments and ideas from residents for addressing current issues and challenges pertaining to various aspects of the community, including: housing, recreation, land use, zoning, business and industry, community facilities, infrastructure, and natural and cultural resources. The community was asked to consider the integration of climate adaptation measures into municipal programs, polices, and operations to reduce community risk and vulnerability.
