Mission & History of the MVCOG


To enhance the quality of city and county government by providing cost effective administrative, human resources, and planning technical assistance to the member jurisdictions.

History of MVCOG

MVCOG was organized in 1970 in response to the need for an area-wide planning organization. Region Nine Development Commission was subsequently organized under the Regional Development Act of 1971 and assumed the responsibilities for area-wide planning. MVCOG then reassessed its role and responsibilities. Since 1973, the projects and assistance undertaken by MVCOG have centered on local government administration, human resources management issues, and the expressed needs of member jurisdictions.
