Building Regional Communities
The National Association of Regional Councils (NARC) serves as the national voice for regions by advocating for regional cooperation as the most effective way to address a variety of community planning and development opportunities and issues.
As part of our continuing effort to help keep you informed about COVID-19, NARC will host a webinar on regional responses to COVID-9, on Wednesday, March 18, 2020 at 3:00 p.m. eastern/2:00 p.m. central/1:00 p.m. mountain/12 p.m. pacific. Topics that will be covered include “continuity of operations,” regional council support of their member cities and counties, and public outreach. This will also be an opportunity for you and your colleagues to share information, concerns, and solutions.
As the coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic continues to spread across the country, regions have begun to take action. NARC has collected resources for local governments and regional councils as they work to support their communities.
Transportation Thursdays is NARC’s weekly publication dedicated to the transportation issues critical to regions. Each edition includes:
- Congress and Administration Updates
- Regional News
