About the Brazos Valley Council of Governments
The Brazos Valley Council of Governments (BVCOG) is a multi-purpose voluntary organization of, by and for local governments.
Originally designated as the federally recognized Brazos Valley Economic Development District in 1966, the council officially reorganized as the Brazos Valley Development Council in 1967 as the result of state legislation. The legislation created 24 statewide planning regions each comprised of a voluntary association of local governments. The regions’ boundaries were based upon a number of characteristics including geographic features, economic market areas, labor markets, commuting patterns, and even media coverage areas.
