Active public engagement in the planning process is vital to ensuring SNHPC’s initiatives reflect the needs and priorities of the communities we serve. We encourage all of our region’s residents and stakeholders to join us during monthly TAC, MPO, and Commission meetings and to get involved in the activities and initiatives that matter most to you.

Attend a meeting
Members of the public are always welcome to attend the monthly meetings held by our MPO/Commission as well as our Technical Advisory Committee. Be sure to check our calendar for details about upcoming meetings. Agendas and Zoom links are typically posted about a week in advance.
Join the Commission
SNHPC Commissioners meet monthly to offer insight and guidance on a variety of planning activities in the region. Since SNHPC is the Metropolitan Planning Organization for the region, Commissioners also serve as members of the MPO Policy Committee to advance regional transportation planning in a cooperative, comprehensive, and continuous manner.
Commissioners are typically nominated for a 4-year term by their local community’s Planning Board. If you have time and energy to dedicate to shaping the future of the SNHPC region, contact your local town planning official to see how you can get involved. More details can be found here.
