January 19, 2006 Community Meeting

Meeting Summary: Community Meeting 1 was held on January 19, 2006 at the Derryfields, Manchester, NH and was attended by over 80 people. Jeff Taylor, former director of the New Hampshire Office of State Planning, presented case studies of New Hampshire growth management. The goal of this meeting was for participants to discuss initiatives or projects that had been undertaken in their community that were successful “Stars” or unsuccessful “Turkeys” and specifically why the outcome was what it was. The participants were broken into three groups representing Corridor Communities, Agencies, and NGO’s for discussion. The Star and Turkey characteristics from each group were then summarized. The final activity for the session was for the participants to identify potential resources needed to develop their vision for the future.
