Land Use & Housing

Land use patterns, transportation, and community networks are strongly linked, and this relationship is paramount to all local, regional and statewide planning and program decisions. Changing land use patterns also directly impact community services and facilities, such as water and sewer, police, fire and emergency services, recreation, and building inspection. As a result, SNHPC works directly with our member communities in the development of land use studies, specific area plans, build out analyses, and other local and regional land use planning initiatives.
