What Will Make the Lower Connecticut River Valley More Resilient Over the Next Ten Years? We Want to Hear From You! The Lower Connecticut River Valley Council of Governments (RiverCOG) is currently working to create its first Regional Plan of Conservation and Development (POCD). This is the region’s guiding document, designed and prepared to work alongside the State Plan of Conservation & Development and municipal POCDs. In support of this project, a series of public workshops will be held. The goal of the workshops is to gather input from those who live, work, and visit the region. This input will guide the creation of the plan. Please join us at the public plan kick-off!
