Detailed Collection Information
The Citizens' Council of Delaware County was a county-wide citizens organization (financed in part by the United Fund) that was concerned with studying and making suggestions for solving the physical problems caused by the growth of the county. Its aim was to arouse citizens and government interest in the Council's programs for industrial development, highways, and transportation, and sanitation and conservation of water supply and natural resources.
The CCDC was created in 1957 by the merger of the Citizens' Housing and Planning Association of Delaware County (CHPA) and the Citizens' Creek Valley Association of Delaware County (CCVA). The CHPA was organized in 1954 as a citizens group to study county-wide problems relevant to housing and planning. The CCVA was a private group that was organized in 1956 with more limited aims than the CHPA. The CCVA was not concerned with county wide projects, but exclusively with those relevant to the creek valley areas of the county, mainly water pollution and conservation of parks and woodlands.
