Regional Planning

Land use and transportation patterns have changed significantly over the last few decades stretching beyond traditional geographic and political boundaries. Federal resources continue to diminish as our communities deal with aging local infrastructure and increased public sector needs. These challenges impact our region’s economy and quality of life in our cities and towns. Regional coordination and planning is an effective way to build capacity and leverage new resources.

GPCOG partners with its member communities to provide local and long-range land use and transportation planning support. We assist local communities with research, grant writing, comprehensive and master planning, ordinance development, climate resiliency strategies, and workshop facilitation.
