Western Riverside Council of Governments
The purpose of Western Riverside Council of Governments (WRCOG) is to unify Western Riverside County so that it can speak with a collective voice on important issues that affect its members. Representatives from 17 cities, the Riverside County Board of Supervisors, and the Eastern and Western Municipal Water Districts have seats on the WRCOG Executive Committee, the group that sets policy for the organization. The Riverside County Superintendent of Schools is currently an ex-officio member of the Executive Committee. Together, as a joint powers agency, they take up regional matters critical to our future, from air quality to solid waste and from transportation to the environment.
WRCOG has been a leader in promoting and supporting energy efficiency and sustainability activities among its member agencies, through its HERO Program, Western Riverside Energy Leader Partnership, and Sustainability Subcommittees. WRCOG staff sees the Beacon Award program as a way to support and recognize the leadership of its member agencies. Because of limited staff resources of its member agencies, and the opportunities to highlight the creativity and leadership of its member agencies, WRCOG will take on the role of Beacon Award Program Champion to help its member agencies participate in the Beacon Award program.
WRCOG members participating in the Beacon Award Program include:
