Hampton Master Plan Update
The Town of Hampton is updating its Master Plan, and is
soliciting public input to help shape the Town's future!
During the first phase of the project (which concluded in March of 2021), the Master Plan Steering Committee sought input on the Vision and Coastal Management portions of the plan. The Vision states the values and ideals that will guide the Master Plan. Coastal Management refers to the actions taken to keep the coast’s natural environment, built environment, quality of life, and economic prosperity in balance; it includes resilience - the ability to thrive in a changing climate.
Phase I of the Master Plan update was funded, in part, by NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management under the Coastal Zone Management Act in conjunction with the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services Coastal Program. Milone and MacBroom were the consultants for the first phase.
The second phase of the project (currently in progress) expands upon the Phase I work, and involves a long overdue comprehensive update of the Town's Master Plan. This will help to guide future development, infrastructure improvements, natural resource protection, and other land use related issues. It is anticipated that this phase of the project will be completed by December of 2022.
Phase II of the Master Plan update has been funded as a result of a favorable vote on Article 10 at the March 10, 2020 Town Meeting. Resilience Planning and Design are the consultants for the second phase.
