The New Hampshire Association of Regional Planning Commissions (NHARPC) is the affiliation of the nine regional planning commissions (RPCs) in the state of New Hampshire. The members of the association are the Commissioners of the nine RPCs, and services are provided by RPC staff. Regional planning commissions are required by New Hampshire statute to prepare regional master plans, compile housing needs assessments, and review developments of regional impact.
NHARPC coordinates the activities of the RPCs on a statewide basis by providing information and technical assistance to its members and other groups and organizations. It maintains strategic partnerships with various state and federal agencies and develops planning policies, programs, legislative positions, responses to topical issues, and special projects and initiatives working on behalf of its member commissions and, by extension, the member cities and towns across New Hampshire.
