Reports & Publications

CAPCOG is often commissioned to draft reports on a variety of topics related to its program areas. Reports are commonly done on air quality issues and economic development, planning and resiliency issues; however, its Homeland Security, Aging Services, Emergency Communications divisions have drafted a number of plans and reports for the region and the local entities within it, which can be located in this section. Most CAPCOG publications are available to the public at no charge as PDFs. Printed versions are available to the public at cost of reproduction plus labor and shipping. To order a print, view the fee schedule and contact Director of Administration Sheila Jennings. Get the fee schedule.
