Mid-Region Council of Governments

Mid-Region Council of Governments Providing a forum to address regional issues that help local gov'ts in Bernalillo, Sandoval, Torrance & Valencia Counties plan responsibly for the future.

The Mid-Region Council of Governments (MRCOG) is a multi-county governmental agency that is helping our region plan responsibly for the future, in light of anticipated growth in New Mexico's mid-region. Representing the counties of Bernalillo, Valencia, Torrance, and Sandoval, we provide planning services in the areas of transportation, agriculture, workforce development, employment growth, land-use, water, and economic development. We also provide a forum for groups and individual communities to meet and address regional issues. By working together as a region, we're able to identify and implement short and long term policy decisions that are critical to a healthy community and prosperous New Mexico. Much of the transportation planning support we provide to the outlying areas of the region occurs through the Rural Transportation Planning Organization, and to the urban core through the Metropolitan Planning Organization. The majority of data collection and analysis work is performed region-wide and can be customized to meet individual needs. We also manage the popular commuter rail service: the New Mexico Rail Runner Express. Our regional water planning effort addresses a fundamental concern of local governments: how will we meet future water needs? Likewise, the Agriculture Collaborative focuses on another scarce resource: local farmland, which as a result of urban encroachment, is dwindling. Our regional economy cannot be prosperous without jobs, and through the Workforce Connection of Central New Mexico, Business and Career Centers are assisting area employers while providing quality resources for people exploring career opportunities. We also assist the regional economy by providing a summary of the region's economic conditions and recommended activities for growth and development.

Mission: The MRCOG mission is to strengthen individual communities by identifying and initiating regional planning strategies through open dialogue and collaboration between the member governments.
