Upper Valley Lake Sunapee

Regional Planning Foundation

The Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Foundation (Foundation) is a non-profit with an IRS 501(c) designation. The mission of the Foundation is to support, enhance, and expand the services provided by the Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission (Commission).

The Foundation started in 2020 has identified three pillars of focus based on community needs and Commission expertise. These pillars support and enhance the work the Commission is already doing.



  • Community Engagement/Education  - The Upper Valley has never needed engagement support as much as it does now during a global pandemic. As local entities work to continue moving forward while keeping residents safe, public education and input is increasing. Community needs are changing and we all need to be a part of it. This pillar will focus on educating the public about regional trends, funding, and projects so that the public has input on the changes happening around them.
  • Public Health - As our healthcare leaders focus on the pandemic, there are other public health gaps that need to be filled. The Foundation intends to assist in filling those gaps and supporting public health planning and education in topics such as: emergency action and response plans, climate change initiatives, recreation and active living, household toxics, aging in place. 


  • Housing - The housing challenges in the Upper Valley are well known to all who live and work here. The Foundation intends for this pillar to focus on implementing the Housing Needs Plans and the Keys to the Valley Initiative. There is a plan. There are action strategies. This pillar intends to do some of the work to fix and reduce barriers to housing in the Upper Valley.
