Certified Sites Program PDF Print E-mail

In January 2013 the Southern NH Planning Commission (SNHPC) announced a certified sites program for Southern NH known as ReadySetGo!

Presentations about the program were made to the Economic Development Council (EDC) and Planning Board in April. Interested in the concept of a certified sites program and the potential of expanding commercial & industrial development, the EDC worked to provide the Planning Board with Draft Regulations that could establish the program in town.

The EDC has made two presentations to the Planning Board; first on October 24, 2013 and again on June 26, 2014. At both meetings the EDC presented Draft Regulations, in the form of a Development Regulation Amendment, to the Planning Board.
