What is the role of a Regional Planning Commissioner?

That is a question I asked myself having been recently appointed by the Moultonboro Selectmen as a commissioner to the Lakes Region Planning Commission. I did some research on the LRPC website and read through the ccommissioner's handbook. The following is one page from the handbook.
I know there are many concerns out there about Regional Planning Commissions and some of you may have questions or specific concerns about a wide variety of topics, so please do not hesitate to contact me.
The next scheduled LRPC Commissioner's meeting is July 28th, 2014, time and location to be determined.


The Charter Sounds Good... said...

I see no mention of a duty to solicit and apply for federal grants, tho 3/4 of their budget comes from the Feds. Are they functioning way beyond their original charter?

It will be easy to bring them a list of local concerns, areas they have stayed away from, including Nothhern Pass, the Windmill invasion, the New England energy chrisis, and the new move to use our highways for distributing large amounts of CNG and LNG natural gas.

Be a big challenge to make them effective and relevant to our current needs.

Virtual ... "not physically existing as such, but made by software to appear to do so".

The LRPC already has a broadband effort.

With technology changing so quickly, and MoBO's population aging so quickly(supposedly), maybe the attached URL could be useful in the near future?

Wonder if CruCon would be interested in setting up a company in their vacant building ... ya, I know, it's not part of the "village" :)

Joe, it could be part of the West Moultonborough village. There are a restaurants, a Dunkin, automotive service station, car wash, snack bar, and many, many other service businesses. Isn't this the vision for the 200 year old one built in the wrong place? The lake is even nearby and functions with the same Route 25 passing through it. I hope no one proposes sidewalks. I think a petition to the legislature is required to split off.

To add to Anonymous's comment @ 2:03, don't forget that part of town has sewer. The village can't develop without public sewer.
