Established by state legislation in 1969 the regional planning commissions serve in an advisory role to local governments and community organizations. The Strafford Regional Planning Commission is composed of eighteen municipalities including all thirteen in Strafford County, three in Rockingham County, and two in Carroll County. Its mission is to assure that the region is responsive to the needs of its residents through cooperative actions with municipalities and federal and state agencies, through the implementation of regional plans, and through local planning assistance. Together these actions foster sustainable development and improve the quality of life in the region. The Commission's professional staff provide transportation, land use, economic development, hazard mitigation, water, public health, and natural resource planning services; geographic information services (GIS); data collection and analysis; facilitation; and project management.
