“an organization through which its members do things for themselves, together.”
From time to time in this section, Friends of CV Link will post Coachella Valley Association of Governments (CVAG) items that will be of interest to citizens of the Coachella Valley.
CVAG is the regional planning agency coordinating government services and providing solutions to the common issues of local governments and tribes. CVAG’s Executive Committee is made up of city mayors, county supervisors, and tribal leaders. City staff members sit on other committees such as Transportation, Public Safety, and Technical Advisory Committee. CVAG Staff members are highly skilled professionals’ task with fulfilling the requirements set forth by the Executive Committee. Tom Kirk is the Executive Director.
Both Federal and State governments have established policies to improve air quality, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and address climate change issues. This is a long-term plan going out to 2050. The Executive Committee has taken the pro-active approach by approving the development of CV Link to comply in this mandate.
