Welcome to the official website of the Southern New Hampshire Planning Commission (SNHPC). The Commission was formed under the New Hampshire Statutes in 1966. SNHPC serves as the coordinating agency for the planning initiatives of fourteen communities in the region.

By taking a regional approach to address development concerns, we can attempt to craft effective and efficient solutions that will preserve the special character and valuable resources of the region.

The Commission is also the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the region. The MPO is an organization that conducts transportation planning in a cooperative, comprehensive, and continuous manner. The Federal Highway Acts stipulate that highway construction funds in urbanized areas can only be utilized by states with an MPO in place.
