RPC's News & Notes

February 2017

The RPC staff was sorry to learn of the passing of longtime Commissioner Ted Tocci. Those who have been participants with the RPC for sometime will remember Ted well as Commissioner from Hampton Falls, who was Chairman for two terms, a long time member of the Executive Committee (and practically every other Committee we have at some time or another) and very active in Hampton Falls serving on both the Planning Board and Board of Selectmen. He was a strong leader and strong supporter of the RPC, someone who expected excellence, and who generously gave back in many ways. At our Annual Meeting last June where we honored Ted as RPC Commissioner Emeritus. We will miss him!
EPA MS4 Stormwater Permit  Informational Meetings - 2/15 and 2/16

New Project Launch - New Hampshire Setting SAIL
RPC has partnered with the NH Coastal Program and other regional organizations on the New Hampshire Setting SAIL project to support municipal efforts to adopt climate adaptation strategies, improve community resilience to coastal flooding, protect public health and safety, and increase awareness of coastal flood risks. Specifically, the Setting SAIL project will provide support for municipal implementation of recommendations from the Coastal Risk and Hazards Commission (CRHC) final report Preparing New Hampshire for Projected Storm Surge, Sea-Level Rise, and Extreme Precipitation (2016). The project team will offer customized technical assistance for Great Bay municipalities to prioritize and implement CRHC recommendations that meet their unique needs, and conduct outreach to Conservation Commissions about how they might incorporate CRHC recommendations into their work. Stay tuned for Save the Date invitations for a 3/23 workshop for Great Bay municipalities and an 4/13 workshop for Atlantic coast municipalities.
