2016 Master Plan Community Survey

As one of the first steps in the Bow Master Plan process, the Planning Board is conducting a survey to collect community input that will help inform the Plan’s vision of where Bow is today, where it should be in the future and what is required to get there. The survey asks specific questions not only about transportation, housing choices, natural resource functions and quality, community and economic vitality but more general questions on what residents like best about where they live and what could be improved.

Please note that the online version of the survey is the preferred method for completing the survey. For this method, go to http://cnhrpc.org/bowmp/. If you'd like to complete a paper version, they are available to pick up and drop off at the Library. Results of the survey will be presented at a public forum in the Spring of 2016.

For any questions regarding the Master Plan, contact Matt Taylor, Director of Community Development at commdevl@bow-nh.gov.


Digital Sign submissions
revised 4/28/2016
If a non-profit organization within Bow or that has Bow membership is interested in submitting information for our digital sign, please download the Non-Profit Master Slide template, and using PowerPoint create a slide.  Slides should include your organization's logo in the bottom left corner, and your organiziation's contact information across the bottom.  Having an additional image in your slide is recommended (catches the public's eye) and basic text about who, what, when, where of your event in Georgia font size 18 or greater is also recommended.

Slides that do not contain contact information (such as a web address, email, or phone number) will not be included.  So make sure to put that information in your slide.  Slides submitted by outside non-profit organizations that are not on the template above will also not be included.

Send completed slides to lori@bakerfreelib.org with a start date for slide inclusion, and a date that the slide can be removed from the show.

If anyone needs a tutorial in how to create an effective PowerPoint slide, please contact the LIbrary at info@bakerfreelib.org or call 224-7113 and request an appointment with one of our Library Assistants to learn how to create a PowerPoint slide on our public Internet computers.
