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.
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.
The 2021 People and the Economy report will be delayed due to the late release of the 2016-2020 American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year data which is of critical importance to the report. The Census Bureau recently confirmed that it would delay the release of the ACS 5-year data, originally scheduled for December 2021. The new schedule for the ACS 5-year data will be in March 2022.
