Beaver Boardwalk Community Oversight Committee (BBOC)


The Beaver Boardwalk Community Oversight Committee (BBOC) was established to enhance communication between Administration and the community on matters relating to the Beaver Boardwalk. BBOC considers the varying needs and perspectives of Hinton residents, with the purpose of ensuring that the Beaver Boardwalk Vision is maintained, transcending Council and Administrative staffing changes.

The BBOC objectives are ensuring Boardwalk safety, sustainability, and fostering environmental stewardship of the valuable wetland area, Town Council, Administration, and the BBOC will work collectively to ensure that input from all demographics is meaningfully represented when planning for future programming, maintenance, and capital projects related to the Boardwalk.

The BBOC Vision Statement: 

"The Beaver Boardwalk is a beloved community asset that balances a fiscally responsible, safe, outdoor recreational and educational experience with minimal impact to the natural environment."
