Southeastern Connecticut Council of Governments

The Southeastern Connecticut Council of Governments (SCCOG) is a public agency with representatives from twenty-two towns, cities, and boroughs, formed to provide a basis for intergovernmental cooperation in dealing with a wide range of issues. The Council was organized in October of 1992, taking over the mission of the Southeastern Connecticut Regional Planning Agency (SCRPA), which had been in existence since January 1961.

Primary focus areas of SCCOG are: Regional Planning, which includes producing studies and plans that affect the responsible development of the region; Transportation Planning and prioritization of State and Federal transportation funding, as the region’s Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO); and Regional Services, which includes staffing assistance to local land use commissions and exploring additional avenues for cost savings and inter-municipal cooperation.

For more information about SCCOG, including membership and committee information, see the About page. For member municipality web links, see the bottom of this page.
