What We Do

GPCOG is a leader.  A catalyst.  And a convener.  Our organization serves our 25 member municipalities and the County of Cumberland by helping our communities achieve things together that they cannot do by themselves.  And in all our work we remain focused on greater regional prosperity for everyone through stronger economies, more sustainable environments, and more equitable treatment of every person in our region.  By bringing people together and acting collectively to advance our region GPCOG creates regionalism by helping our communities imagine their future, and then achieve it.

From transportation and land use planning to public health, economic development and clean energy, our team of 16 professional staff work with the elected and professional leaders of our member communities to provide the insight, the networks and the experience needed to catalyze new investments in jobs, to convene critical partners for a more sustainable environment, and lead our region toward a shared vision of greater prosperity.
