While these initiatives are not connected to grant programs, they exemplify the goals of the Strategic Growth Council to promote policies that factor in various elements when creating sustainable communities, and require coordination among multiple agencies.  SGC staff has collaborated with member agencies and departments as well as local and federal governments to support the success of these initiatives and to see these initiatives through early stages of research and planning to design and implementation. 

These initiatives have resulted in projects in various forms, including, but not limited to:

  • Research reports
  • Geospatial data analyses
  • Resolutions
  • MOU's between agencies and departments
  • Policy recommendations
