Development in Pinardville over the last fifty years has occurred in an uncoordinated, piecemeal fashion through variances, spot zoning, and with refashioned zoning mechanisms developed more specifically for the Goffstown Village and the Route 114 Corridor; both distinctly different than Pinardville. Pinardville is typical of the Franco-American settlements that grew in the suburbs of Manchester in the early 20th century, serving as a residential suburb for employees of the mills in Manchester. During the 1930s and 1940s a series of small homes on small lots were built in the area. Post World War II development led to a mix of residential neighborhoods and commercial businesses. Mast Road (Route 114A), Pinardville’s main artery, has been developed essentially as a commercial corridor through the center of Pinardville.
Although Goffstown adopted zoning in 1961, it was enacted without comprehensive planning and therefore reflected current uses rather than the community’s vision in Pinardville. Since that time, Pinardville has only seen minor changes in zoning regulations. Pinardville is in sore need of better regulations that will focus on creating the flexibility needed for mixed use, compact development, and more transportation options, while supporting more active, healthy, and socially engaged lifestyles.
The Pinardville Sustainable Community Plan & Smart Code project will focus new attention and creative analysis to the Pinardville section of Goffstown. The goal of the project will be the development and adoption of the Pinardville Sustainable Community Plan, which will be implemented through regulatory changes to strengthen the Pinardville Community as a sustainable community. This project will result in smart growth regulations (the Smart Code) that will cultivate the neighborhood's unique character, encourage mixed-use developments, and create a more livable and sustainable Pinardville Community.
