The Triangle J Council of Governments was first organized in 1959 as the Research Triangle Regional Planning Commission. More than 50 years later, long-range planning for land use and infrastructure continues as a key program area for TJCOG, with Regional Planning now encompassing a wide range of programs covering air quality, waste reduction, water resources and other environmental initiatives, as well as administration of Foreign Trade Zone #93 and production of the Region J Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy. Through its Aging Services division, TJCOG works with all seven of the region’s counties as the administrator and coordinator of services for the rapidly growing population of aging adults.

TJCOG’s Mission

About the Blog

Welcome to the Executive Director’s Blog! I am excited for this opportunity to share with you many of the exciting programs and initiatives going on at Triangle J Council of Governments. I will also use this forum to highlight how our work, and its outcomes, are not possible without the support of our 37 member governments and the outstanding work of our talented staff. It is an honor to work with such passionate civil servants and I am happy to share the great things they do with you.
