Local Government Roundtable

OPR invites local governments to participate in our Local Government Roundtable bimonthly conference call. The Local Government Roundtable provides an opportunity for greater interaction between the Governorís Office, local governments, and planning agencies to discuss issues of primary concern related to land use planning and local government coordination. This approach allows for open discourse of important issues and informs OPRís decision making process. OPR regularly seeks input from local governments on important topic areas and this is one mechanism used to ensure OPR is responding to the needs of local governments.

Roundtable Schedule and Information

Roundtables will be held by conference call on the third Monday of every other month at 1:30 PM. Save the date reminders are typically sent a month in advance with agendas and related call in information sent a week prior to the call.
