Greater Portland Council of Governments

For more than half a century, the Greater Portland Council of Governments has helped cities and towns do together what they can't do alone.

Guided by the region's municipal leaders, we work to make our member communities prosperous, equitable and sustainable.

We can do this work because we have committed municipal volunteers, closely aligned partner organizations and a talented staff drawn from the broadest range of professional experiences.

Our official roles are multiple: we are a Regional Planning Organization, a Metropolitan Planning Organization and an Economic Development District. We also do work in public health and sustainability.

But our mission is simple: we are helping the region adapt and thrive in a world that is quickly changing.
