Abstract

Land use and development are shaped by the plans and decisions made at the local level by the municipal and county Planning Boards. Master Plans are created and adopted by these boards and serve as a comprehensive, forward looking policy statement to guide the overall character, physical form, growth, and development of a community. This study provides a comprehensive analysis of Master Plans in New Hampshire in order to determine how communities are addressing possible future changes in the natural and built environments and related impacts on the population. This ongoing research provides information that will be useful to researchers, state agencies, and planners to help them align future research, applied projects, and training with the land use issues and plans identified by our communities.
