Planning and Transportation

The LCOG’s Planning Department is involved in a wide array of activities, from developing long-range transportation objectives for the region, hazard mitigation, economic development and providing local planning assistance. 

LCOG Planning:

The LCOG is designated by the state as both the area-wide planning agency for water pollution reduction and the staff for metropolitan transportation planning and public involvement. In addition, local governments and non-profit organizations regularly enlist the COG to help conduct special studies and to prepare comprehensive or small area plans.
