Founded in 1973, North Country Council (NCC) is the regional planning agency serving 51 communities and 25 unincorporated places in the northern third of New Hampshire. It is the mission of North Country Council to encourage effective community and regional planning for the development of economic opportunity and the conservation of natural, cultural and economic resources. This is accomplished by providing information, regional advocacy, technical assistance, community education, and direct service to the region, its organizations, and political subdivisions.
During our over 40 year history, NCC has always been a flexible organization, working with communities on a variety of issues and community concerns as needs have arisen. In its function of service to the region, NCC initiates or provides essential support for planning and economic development services.
