New Hope Creek Corridor Advisory Committee


All About the NHCCAC

Behind our unwieldly acronym is a group of Triangle-area residents who are devoted to New Hope Creek. The New Hope Creek Corridor Advisory Committee was established to advise local government on implementing the 1991 New Hope Corridor Open Space Master Plan. Its further mission is to enhance awareness of the natural, historical, and cultural value of the New Hope Creek Corridor and to encourage community stewardship of these heritage resources.

The committee is composed of representatives from local governments and commissions, universities, environmental organizations, landowners, citizens' groups, and concerned individuals. A list of current committee members and their organizational affiliations, if applicable, appears below.
