AUTHORS: Simon Corson*, Town of Amherst New Hampshire

ABSTRACT: This presentation explains how the Town of Amherst, New Hampshire has utilized ArcGIS Online to support the Amherst Historic District Commission (HDC) and Amherst Heritage Commission (HC). The HDC is a regulatory board responsible for overseeing 316 properties. The HC is an advisory board charged with inventorying historical and cultural resources, as well as assist property owners in preservation efforts._x000D_
To assist the HDC, Amherst's Community Development Department created a map that makes the National Register Nomination Form tabular, shares basic assessing information, includes all past HDC applications, Certificates of Approval/Denial as attachments, and visualizes building footprints and parcel data provided by the Nashua Regional Planning Commission. The HDC uses this map during public hearings to explain their findings to the public and to do basic analysis. For example, when the HDC is deliberating about setbacks from character defining features, they may use ArcGIS Online tools to get a general understanding of sight distance, public view, etc. _x000D_
For the HC, the Community Development Department created a web application in ArcGIS Online to share the Town's heritage sites documented in the Heritage Resource Survey. The Heritage Resource Survey was produced by Elizabeth Durfee Hengen in 2009 through a grant from the National Park Service and in partnership with the New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources. The HC uses the 2009 Survey as the format for the web application, while adding relevant texts and photos to existing and new heritage sites as appropriate.
