Update on Our Progress

The Steering Committee and Heritage Commission reviewed the first draft of the plan.

Feedback from the Heritage Commission, Planning Board, Recreation Commission, and others will be addressed before the second draft is released.

February 18, 2019

We’re still working! Since our public workshop on October 16 (see what was presented and discussed here), we continue to meet with community stakeholders to understand important issues in Stratham, such as historic and cultural preservation, agriculture, town services, and walking and biking safety.

The Master Plan Steering Committee continues to meet the 2nd Monday of the month at the Municipal Center from 6:30-8 pm. Please join us!

We are currently planning a public event in the spring. We want to confirm with you the issues and needs important to Stratham’s future and get feedback on how we move forward. Look for an announcement with details soon!
