PREPA Grant Project - Local Land Use Regulations (Audit and Amendments)

The Town of Hampton has received grant funding, from the Piscataqua Region Estuaries partnership (PREP), to review its existing land use regulations and to present drafted amendments to the Planning Board. The purpose of these proposed changes is to improve Hampton’s coastal resilience and mitigate the negative impacts of sea level rise and climate change on the community.  Hampton is working with a consulting firm, Resilience Planning and Design, to audit the existing land use regulations and present recommendations for integrating New Hampshire’s Coastal Flood Risk Guidance. This project will also involve an extensive public outreach and education component to obtain feedback on draft recommendations through two public events, and through the use of digital and print communications.
