Regional Transportation – Southwest Region Transportation Plan

In 2007, the Southwest Region Planning Commission completed a regional transportation plan that outlines eight recommendations for planning and development of a future regional transportation system. The plan’s recommendations should be reviewed periodically, especially when planning for transportation infrastructure, to ensure that Keene’s projects are aligned with the community’s and the region’s needs.

Keene’s public planning process identified the following areas as regional transportation needs. These needs align well with the recommendations in the 2007 regional transportation plan. Keene places a high priority on continuing to collaborate and participate in regional transportation planning, as well as lobbying for federal and state funding to improve state highways through the state’s Ten Year Transportation Improvement Plan process.
