Who We Are
The Eastern Plains Council of Governments (EPCOG) is a voluntary association of government entities within a seven-county planning and development district. EPCOG is one of seven Council of Governments (COGs) in the state of New Mexico that was initially created by New Mexico Executive Order No. 1 of 1969 by former Governor David F. Cargo. Aside from councils, COGs may also be referred to as regional commissions, planning commissions, economic development districts, planning authorities, planning districts, and metropolitan planning organizations across the United States. COGs, in general, function with local governments to assist with transportation planning, regional planning, comprehensive planning, economic development initiatives, technical assistance, public services, and other public programs.
