PLAN NH - 2012 Community Design Charrette Program - Seeking Applications
Plan NH is currently seeking applications from New Hampshire communities for the 2012 Community Design Charrette Program.
Many towns have a downtown or a significant neighborhood that they need help with, but are not sure where to start. Perhaps it needs to be more inviting, or more vibrant. Some towns are trying to figure out how to recapture the essence of their "sense of place," or how to preserve it while planning for growth.
Plan NH works with communities to help them discover what they want and then develops recommendations based on that to help them move their vision forward.
Towns or groups completing and submitting the application by Friday, March 16, 2012, will be considered for an intensive, two-day brainstorming session, focusing on the issue or need of that town's choosing.
Selected communities will have a team of Plan NH professionals within the building and planning-related industries come to town and work in collaboration with local leaders and residents to develop recommendations.
Since the first charrette held in Belmont in 1996 to save the mill, Plan NH has completed 49 Design Charrettes around New Hampshire, almost 20% of our communities.
