The Naugatuck Valley Council of Governments (NVCOG) is a forum for chief elected officials to discuss issues of common concern and to develop programs to address them on a regional level. Fundamentally, NVCOG is a planning organization, concerned with transportation, land use, environmental and emergency planning for the Naugatuck Valley Region (NVR). NVCOG sets regional priorities for a variety of federal and state funding programs, oversees regional programs for member municipalities, and provides technical assistance to municipalities, state and federal agencies, local organizations, and the general public.

Naugatuck River Greenway

After 20 years of revitalization, the Naugatuck River has been transformed into a healthy ecosystem that attracts anglers, hikers, kayakers, and cyclers throughout the municipalities that border the river. The Naugatuck River Greenway is a proposed 44-mile linear trail that runs along the river. Segments of the trail have already been built. COGCNV has worked with member municipalities to produce feasibility studies which will enable each city and town on the river to begin the process of acquiring funding to build and connect the trails.
