DRCOG Board of Directors
Our Board of Directors meets at 6:30 p.m. the third Wednesday of each month. In addition to its monthly meeting, a Board work session is held at 4 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month. During our open public comment period at the meeting or for a public hearing item on the agenda, come to share your thoughts or provide any general comments. Attending a Board meeting or work session is a great way to learn about important regional issues and DRCOG’s work to address them. Videos of all Board meetings and work sessions are also available on YouTube.
 
Committees
DRCOG’s Board of Directors is informed by its committees, which involve many individuals, groups and organizations in DRCOG’s decision-making process. Meetings of the Advisory Committee on Aging, Regional Transportation Committee and Transportation Advisory Committee always include time for public comments.

Major plans and programs 
These regional plans and programs are the primary focus of DRCOG’s policy work, with Metro Vision serving as the policy framework for most decisions. Future updates of these plans will involve a number of opportunities for public input. In addition to the plans described below, DRCOG has several other important adopted plans and initiatives that guide our region, with additional new and innovative plans continually under development.   
 

Public engagement plan

Our public engagement plan, People-centered planning, projects and services, was adopted in May 2019. The plan is a guidebook for DRCOG staff to plan and implement meaningful and effective engagement.
