Regional Master Plan Survey
As you may be aware, Rockingham Planning Commission (RPC) is currently updating the regional master plan and is actively seeking input from residents in our region. We are conducting an online community survey to gather community members’ thoughts on a variety of topics, including land use, transportation, economic development, natural resources, climate change and energy, and historical resources. The online survey is one of several ways the RPC is gathering public input to be reflected in the regional master plan update. Additional input is being gathered through local master plans, public meetings, focus groups, telephone survey, online forum, and by our municipally-appointed Commissioners.
