Broad Brook Coalitionupdated: January 2010

Broad Brook Coalition (BBC) is a nonprofit, all-volunteer community organization dedicated to the preservation of open space and the promotion of affordable housing. It co-manages the 600-acre Fitzgerald Lake Conservation Area in Northampton, Massachusetts, in cooperation with the Northampton Conservation Commission.  It also seeks to add to and expand the conservation area and raises funds for that purpose.  It is particularly interested in hearing from owners of land near the Fitzgerald Lake Conservation Area.

Broad Brook Coalition was organized in 1987 for the following purposes:

  • Preservation and enhancement of the natural character of the Broad Brook area of Northampton and improvement of the future quality of life of Northhampton residents through the wise use of natural resources to meet the affordable housing and outdoor recreational needs of the community;
  • Promotion and facilitation of the conservation of the natural environment, especially near Broad Brook and its tributaries, of wetland and wildlife habitat;
  • Promotion and facilitation of public ownership of and access to open space;
  • Promotion and facilitation, through community outreach, education, research, or other lawful activities, of the development, implementation of, and public accessibility to, effective and beneficial environmental laws and land use policies responsive to the needs of the community.
