A Granite State Future was a 3-year (2012-2014) community-based program starting with a public dialogue about what people want for the future of the communities, regions, and the state.
This ambitious three-year project looked at how to improve the towns and the state: what are the options and how can they be achieved? It culminated with an update of the regional plans in each of New Hampshire's nine planning regions. The regional Master Plans were based upon grassroots local values and needs that together presented a vision for how to keep what is valued most while increasing prosperity and economic opportunity.
The combined work of A Granite State Future will help communities integrate planning across sectors and identify, share, and replicate successful projects. Together, this collaboration will make it possible for large communities and small villages throughout the state to achieve economic vitality, and protect the natural resources, character and rural landscapes that are so important to New Hampshire.
