NCTCOG Celebrates 50 Years of Regional Cooperation!

On January 20, 1966, the local governments of North Central Texas established the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) in response to their common interests and concerns and the need for a joint approach to resolve areawide problems. This voluntary, cooperative venture was intended to help local governments improve their capability to serve their citizens by defining regional issues, problems and opportunities; by setting priorities and devising polices, plans and programs to deal with them; and by achieving efficient and effective action on areawide matters through communication, coordination and cooperation.

Throughout the year, we will look back at significant events that helped North Central Texas grow into one of the most vibrant regions in the country. So, come and join in the celebration, as this yearlong look back will be chronicled through our 50th anniversary website, in newsletters, videos, photos, and during this year's General Assembly, which will be held on Friday, June 17 at the Hurst Conference Center.
