CNHRPC staff provide support and assistance to its twenty member communities which manifests itself in many ways.  

  • General assistance can include ordinance and regulation review, consultations for Master Plans and Capital Improvement Programs (CIP), access to data or GIS data, traffic counts, and technical assistance for planning issues.
  • Specialized assistance is available to member communities for Master Plan and CIP preparation and updates, circuit rider planning, development review, grant writing, revisions to ordinances and regulations, GIS mapping projects, and other opportunities.
  • Other specialized assistance develops projects to help communities, such as Hazard Mitigation Plans, Corridor Studies, and others.
  • Local Board and Committee members can benefit from the many meetings and workshops the CNHRPC organizes or hosts yearly, including Full Commission meetings with guest speakers, Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) meetings, various workshops, and others.
