Littleton NH River District

The River District

The River District Commission is a master-planned community group of state and town officials and local residents dedicated to revitalizing the Ammonoosuc River district in Littleton, New Hampshire.

The mighty Ammonoosuc River is a viable locale poised to enhance Littleton's award-winning Main Street. Rooted in a landscape that put this small town on the map, the riverfront is the logical next step for economic redevelopment due to its scenic splendor and proximity to Main Street shopping.

History of The River District Commission

In September, 2012, the Town of Littleton and Plan New Hampshire sponsored a Saranac Street Design Charrette. Professional designers and many residents attended the two-day session to brainstorm ideas on how to reinvigorate one of Littleton's most historic commercial and residential areas. From these discussions, the River District Commission was formed, and plans and projects are now underway.

Where Is the River District?

The River District includes both sides of the river, from Meadow Street to Cottage Street. Saranac Street officially becomes Ammonoosuc Street just east of the suspension bridge, and several small streets between this point and Cottage Street (directly behind the downtown area of Main Street) should also be included in the redevelopment.
