Upper Valley Regional Planning Commission Forum

I received an e-mail today through the mailing list. It is an invitation to area residents to come and hold a conversation about how we think our region should develop. I’m heartened that UVLSRPC wants to connect so closely with area residents and discuss important issues.

From the e-mail:

The issues local leaders face are many, including public health, transportation, economic development, infrastructure, housing, land use, energy, cultural, historic, natural resources and more. Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission is committed to engaging everyone to identify local assets, needs and ways to effectively use limited government resources.  Community conversations are designed and hosted by NH Listens and UNH Cooperative Extension. All perspectives are welcome and we hope you will join us!

The closest event to Hanover is scheduled for February 26, 2013 at 6:00 pm at The Common Man Inn in Claremont.

The registration for this event can be accomplished online or by calling NH Listens.

For anyone who is interested in local bicycling and pedestrian issues this would be an opportune time to show your support for the activities we love and the communities we live in.

See you there!
