Londonderry planners get growth plan update

(Continued)

With the massive Woodmont Commons project approved, there are already factors included in that plan to make sure growth is done correctly.

Woodmont developers have included substantial infrastructure projects and other public investments to support the town.

Londonderry has done a good job, Hawke said.

“A lot of positives have come out of the process since you’ve had (the GMO) in place,” he said. “Municipal services are in order and you are managing growth well.”

Planning Board Chairman Art Rugg said once the ordinance expires next year, it could be enacted back into law quickly by the town.

“It’s a good ordinance,” Rugg said. “It’s served us very well.”

The town now has other planning tools in place to handle each project as it comes before the town, Rugg said.

“As each project comes up, we deal with it through our zoning ordinances and with developers,” he said.

Rugg said the board would revisit the growth management conversation on a regular basis.
