Cochecho Waterfront Development

Groundbreaking on a transformative public infrastructure project is ready to get underway shortly in Dover. And when complete, the combination of public improvements and private development is expected to result in a combination of waterfront Park, enhanced Cochecho River shoreline, businesses and residences. The waterfront park is well over a decade in planning, and will ultimately link the downtown to the new spaces. Christopher Parker is the deputy City Manager. He has seen this process develop as  planning director in the city. He talked with podcast producer Roger Wood about the extensive public involvement in the project.

Christopher Parker has over 25 years of municipal experience having served in various capacities with the City of Dover since 1997, where he has focused on developing long-term goals and objectives for the City and overseeing the land use and development functions within the community development arena.

He supports all municipal departments with strategic planning activities, oversees downtown development/redevelopment, and assists the City Manager with special projects and community initiatives.
