INNOVATIVE LAND USE GUIDE AND PLANNING TECHNIQUES
The State of New Hampshire’s nine Regional Planning Commission in conjunction with the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services along with numerous experts and professionals will soon be publishing the Innovative Land Use Planning Techniques: A Handbook for Sustainable Development. This new handbook will serve as a toolkit for municipalities and public officials concerned with managing sustainable growth within their communities. The handbook contains an overview and model Models for each of the innovative land use tools authorized under RSA 674:21.
This website has been developed to serve as an introduction to the Innovative Land Use Planning Techniques Handbook by providing a link to each of the model Models which have been developed so far. It also identifies by clicking on the map of municipalities, a list of all the innovative land use regulations that each municipality within the region is currently using along with a link to that Model or regulation.
It is important to remember that before an innovative land use Model is adopted under RSA 674:21, the need and justification for that Model needs to be addressed within the community’s Master Plan.
We hope you will find this website useful as you go about considering any of the innovative land use planning techniques and model Models. For specific questions or further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
