A Region for the Future
News & Events
CRCOG is currently in the process of updating the Regional Plan of Conservation and Development.
If you are interested in learning more, please leave your email to join our interested parties list and/or take our survey to tell us about your vision for the Region.
What is the Regional Plan of Conservation and Development?
The regional plan is not a detailed land use plan, but rather a general 10 year vision guide for the Capitol Region. Using the goals and polices of the regional plan, Councils of Government comment on the consistency of municipal plans of conservation and development with:
(1) the Regional Plan of Conservation & Development,
(2) the State Plan of Conservation and Development, and
(3) the plans of conservation and development of other municipalities in the area of operation of the regional planning agency.
Local plans of conservation and development must also refer to the regional plan to "note any inconsistencies" with the "growth management principle" of "integration of planning across all levels of government to address issues on a local, regional and state-wide basis".
