Attendees will benefit from hearing what has worked and what hasn't (and why) elsewhere in the state.

    Presenters include Carol Ogilvie, land-use consultant; Steve Whitman, resilient planning; Sarah Marchant, City of Nashua and Jeff Gowan, Town of Pelham. The moderator will be Elissa Margolin, the director of Housing Action NH.
