Stratford master-plan update survey:
We need your insights as we amend Stratford’s current master plan! It is not a legal ordinance, or a rigid plan, or a magic document that will solve all Town problems; it is a tool to guide Town officials and the community as we plan and prepare for the future.

New Hampshire state law mandates planning boards to “prepare and amend from time to time a master plan to guide the development of the municipality”. Our present master plan was written in 2008. This survey is one piece of the public input we seek to update our plan. Look for future public meetings as we collect data and comments.

Thank you for taking the time to help guide your town by responding to this survey!
