Regional Planning

To achieve more efficient and sustainable development and stronger communities in metropolitan Washington requires collaboration across jurisdictions. COG's Regional Planning and Analysis Program works collaboratively to support local, state, and federal planning activities.  The program is responsible for developing long-range regional planning goals and integrating planning policies around land use, transportation, housing, and the environment.

Regional planning research and implementation activities are guided by Region Forward, the region's comprehensive vision plan. The Regional Planning and Analysis Program leads inter-departmental coordination within COG related to Region Forward and provides support for the Region Forward Coalition, a multi-sector group created by the COG Board of Directors to help the region achieve its goals and targets. 

As needed, the program also provides member governments and officials with updates and analyses on federal government actions that impact the region, including the Defense Base Closure and Realignment (BRAC) process.
