The Iowa Northland Regional Council of Governments is an association of local governments that is committed to identifying, securing, and coordinating local, regional, and federal government projects and programs for the enhancement of our region and member communities.
INRCOG has conducted numerous studies to understand transportation needs in the MPO and RTA areas. Most notably, the Black Hawk County MPO was included as an add-on partner for the 2017 National Household Travel Survey (NHTS). Led by FHWA, the NHTS add-on survey gathered input from 1,221 households in the MPO area.
In recent years, INRCOG has taken an active role in researching the needs of underrepresented and vulnerable populations in the region. These studies are conducted in-house by INRCOG staff.
INRCOG staff gathers public input as part of larger planning processes. Please contact staff to discuss conducting a public input survey for your community, or to learn about existing data available.
INRCOG provides technical assistance for freight planning activities in the MPO and RTA planning areas. Most recently, INRCOG worked directly with five jurisdictions to study freight needs in the Northeast Industrial Area in Black Hawk County. INRCOG is also an active participant in the IA Hwy 150 Coalition. Contact staff with questions about the Northeast Industrial Access Study or IA Hwy 150 Coalition.
