Economic Development Committee

The Sutton Select Board is forming an Economic Development Committee to assist the Select Board and the Planning Board in implementing the action items identified in the 2021 Master Plan update relating to (1) bringing appropriate types of uses to Sutton that will improve our tax base, and (2) creating opportunities for the development of appropriate senior and workforce housing.

Committee members should have an interest in advancing Sutton’s Master Plan, keeping in mind the need to maintain our rural atmosphere and the sense of community among our townspeople.  Areas of expertise would  include knowledge of land use and planning, real estate development — including low-impact commercial and affordable housing for the local workforce and seniors, and financial options available through government incentives, non-profits and commercial lenders.

If you are a Sutton resident interested in serving on this committee, please send a letter of interest and summary of qualifications to:  Sutton Select Board, 93 Main Street, Sutton Mills, NH  03221 or by email to:
