The Area's Regional Planning Commission
Lake of the Ozarks Council of Local Governments has a number of State and Federal planning partners we work with on a regular basis to develop regional goals and priorities in regard to economic development, transportation, disaster and recovery planning and environmental planning.
Economic Development Administration (EDA) which is a part of the Department of Commerce has provided LOCLG with a planning grant that helps LOCLG facilitate our Economic Development Advisory Committee (EDAC). The EDAC spends considerable time developing the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) for the region. This document outlines our goals for economic growth within the region. With the help of the EDAC members LOCLG also spends time and effort into the implementation of the CEDS. Our most current CEDS 2017 can be found on the Economic Development page.
Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) works with all the regional planning commissions across the State to help facilitate transportation planning and developing priorities in several areas within the planning frame work. The frame work includes: Taking Care of the System, Safety, Economic Development, and Expansion. Locally, we have a Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) with representation from each of our four counties that bring the counties transportation needs forward and then prioritizes those projects to include in our Regional Transportation Plan. Working closely with MoDOT these projects are advanced based on the needs, funds available for the project and community input. The ultimate goal is to get those projects into the STIP for future development.
Lake of the Ozarks Council of Local Governments (LOCLG) works with our communities to assist with projects that have been identified as priorities for the region. LOCLG is currently working on a number of diverse projects.
City of Lebanon asked LOCLG to help develop an evacuation plan in the event of a disaster. With grant funds awarded from CDBG, LOCLG is in the process of developing the evacuation plan to help the community direct their residents to safety in the event of a disaster.
City of Versailles requested that LOCLG help them develop a comprehensive plan for the community and identify future development within the region. The other aspect of this project is building a more resilient community where visioning will help plan for tomorrow.
City of Laurie LOCLG is assisting with community development in writing a comprehensive plan. The project also includes the resiliency component to help the community prepare for the future.
