West Wheelock Street Design Charrette

West Wheelock Street Design Charrette- Tell us what you think!

 A Plan NH Design Team is coming to Hanover to help sort out the many issues associated with the West Wheelock Corridor.  The Hanover Affordable Housing Commission and Hanover Planning Board recognize underutilized residential land area close to the downtown, a prominent gateway to our Main Street commercial district and the Dartmouth College campus, challenging topography, and the need to accommodate high traffic volumes with pedestrian safety. What do you think?

There will be two public input sessions on Friday, November 8 at the Parish Hall, St. Thomas Church at 9 West Wheelock Street. The sessions are scheduled from 3-4:30 PM and 6-7:30 PM. The Design Team’s final presentation will be held at the Parish Hall on Saturday, November 9 from 3:30- 4:30 PM.

The Hanover Planning Board is meeting with neighborhoods all over town to discuss resident and landowner desires for the future of their neighborhood. The Hanover Planning Board enthusiastically supports the assistance that could be provided by a community charrette team.  The neighborhood planning parties are a first step toward revision of our 2003 Master Plan.  A charrette format was successfully used to jump start our work on revising the zoning in our downtown.  Based on that experience, we believe a charrette is a good way to involve the variety of stakeholder interests in developing a vision for the corridor and exploring how increased density could be introduced to the area.

Please contact Vicki Smith at Vicki.smith@hanovernh.org, if you have questions about this exciting event.

How old is the building you live in?

At Dartmouth we have a pretty good idea about when our approximately 150 buildings on the core campus were built. We can do some cool coloring stuff with GIS too, but imagine coloring the buildings of a whole country!

The Waag Society a institute for art, science and technology, that develops creative technology for social innovation did that for the 9,866,539 buildings in the Netherlands, shaded according to year of construction!
