Hopkinton-Contoocook Downtowns & Trails Project
The Town of Hopkinton partnered in 2023 with UNH Cooperative Extension's Economic and Community Development team to learn about resident and visitor experiences in the Village of Contoocook and on local trails, and to better connect the trails (including the blue trail of the river) with sustainable economic development goals.
The project began with the Steering Committee conducting a spatial assessment - a cataloging of physical features present or lacking - and an open survey, followed by more in depth interviews with "Key Informants."
NEW! The report is out!

Action committees will be forming soon and there will be opportunities to engage in next steps (contact Economic Development Director Anna Wells for more information).
UNH has published articles about the project:
