About The Council


Mission: The Council’s Mission is to establish an organization truly representative of the people of the North Coast Area in matters of civic interest, and to represent the community before all bodies, public and private, where the subject is appropriate to the objectives of the NCAC.

Formed in 1996, the North Coast Advisory Council is one of several advisory councils established by San Luis Obispo County.  The Council is a conduit to county government decision-makers on issues such as land use, planning, traffic and circulation, policing and code enforcement.

NCAC members are elected by their neighbors to serve seven geographical voting areas in Cambria and one in San Simeon.  The Council also appoints representatives for business, agriculture, environment and Latina/Latino interests.
