A Regional Approach to New Hampshire

Dec 9, 2011

New Hampshire has always had an independent streak which continues down to its most local way of governing. Each small town with its own select-board, police and fire departments and with its own school district.  But now that Granite State's population has grown to over 1.3 million, many question whether a town by town form of government still works and if a regional approach might be better and a more economically viable way of doing business. Some towns have already been trying to consolidate but in a state known for its independent streak, it hasn't always come easy.  Today we explore the idea of regionalism in New Hampshire.
