NWMCOG Connects with Region's Legislators
On February 6th, 2013, the Northwest Michigan Council of Governments (NWMCOG) held an informal luncheon open house in Lansing for the region's eight state legislators and their staff members. The luncheon provided the NWMCOG staff some time to keep legislators up to date on the agency's current activities pertaining to workforce, economic, and community development.

Our Township greatly benefits from Network Northwest's experience, depth of knowledge and understanding. Because they work with so many diverse communities in our ten-county region they understand the local land-use issues and are already working on solutions by the time we realize we need some help.Susan Odom, Chair, Suttons Bay Township Planning Commission
