Administrative history

The Association lobbied municipal and provincial government, and other second parties, on issues related to community planning, development, land use, and public services. Members of the Association participated in municipal committees and, notably, provided input through the Community Planning Advisory Committee on the Northeast Coquitlam Official Community Plan (2000).
