Council on Resources and Development

The Council on Resources and Development (CORD) provides a forum for interagency cooperation in assuring consistency with established policies relating to the environment, natural resources, and growth management issues under RSA 162-C. CORD is also responsible for resolving interagency conflicts in the implementation of the state's tourism policy, for oversight of the statewide public boat access program, and for reviewing the disposal of state owned real property.

Principal among CORD's duties is the implementation of the state's smart growth policy, as embodied in RSA 9-B. CORD is responsible for encouraging smart growth consistency in the distribution of state agency funds to local and regional entities, the capital budget requests of state agencies, state agency facility location planning, and building operation and maintenance plans. Every four years, CORD is required to report to the Legislature on its findings on the consistency of state agency actions with the smart growth principles. CORD also facilitates the coordination of state, regional, and local planning consistent with RSA 9-A.

The Director of OEP serves as CORD chairman. Additional CORD member agencies include:
