From the Outskirts to Downtown: Taxes, Land Use & Value in 15 New Hampshire Communities

Property taxes are the key revenue source for New Hampshire’s local governments. Join us for a highly visual and engaging virtual presentation by Joe Minicozzi of Urban3 that’s based on his analysis of the taxes, land use, and land value in 15 communities across the state.


By using these data to create 3D visualizations, Urban 3’s analysis reveals the potential for improving the fiscal health of each of these 15 communities. The visuals show what types of development create the greatest tax return for communities, and create a clear and data-driven understanding of the economics of place. With these 3D depictions of its data, a community can use this as a tool to make public policy adjustments, with the goal of creating long-term financial resiliency.


New Hampshire Housing contracted with Urban3 to analyze the property tax revenues of Berlin, Claremont, Concord, Dover, Exeter, Hanover, Hudson, Keene, Laconia, Lebanon, Nashua, Pelham, Peterborough, Portsmouth and Rochester. (In 2018, the Orbit Group hired Urban3 to conduct an analysis of Manchester.)


Joseph Minicozzi, AICP is the principal of Urban3, which looks at how land is used and affects tax productivity. He is an urban planner who utilizes new ways to think about and visualize land use, urban design, and economics.
