Smart Growth & Water Resources Collaboratives
The Smart Growth Collaborative meets quarterly to address land use and development issues within the region and serve as TJCOG's link to related issues such as transportation and open space. Technical teams or small group meetings may be created on an as-needed basis to develop or respond to specific initiatives or research projects. The role of TJCOG is to convene parties interested in furthering responsible community growth in the region and facilitate collaborative and informative meetings. Full Overview

The Water Resources Collaborative has been administered by TJCOG since 2004. The WRC meets quarterly throughout the year, including joint meetings with the Smart Growth Committee on topics of mutual interest; in addition, technical teams or small group meetings may be created on an as-needed basis to develop or respond to specific initiatives. The role of TJCOG is to convene the WRC as a group of parties interested in furthering integrated water resources management in the region and facilitate collaborative and informative meetings.
Co-Chairs: Lori Bush, Town of Cary Councilmember, and TJ Cawley, Mayor of Morrisville
Both the Smart Growth and Water Resources Collaboratives are open to all interested members of the public. As the issues of smart growth and water resources are co-dependent, the collaboratives are held jointly several times a year in addition to 1-2 individual meetings.
