Clean air in Central Oklahoma translates into a better quality of life for its residents. Through an annual public education campaign, the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments’ Clean Air Committee proactively shares tips on reducing harmful ground-level ozone.
Throughout the year, the Clean Air Marketing Committee, comprised of public-facing representatives from organizations including the Association of Central Governments, the City of Oklahoma City, the Oklahoma Department of Transportation, the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality and many others, convenes to cooperate on a regional level to increase awareness about transportation-related emissions and demonstrate through public education initiatives how citizens in Central Oklahoma can work together by working independently. Additionally, the Committee monitors the region’s air quality and alerts the public and public stakeholders of Ozone Alert Days throughout the five month-long May to September ozone season.
The Association of Central Oklahoma Governments
The Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (ACOG) is an association of city, town and county governments within Central Oklahoma. The ACOG region includes Oklahoma, Cleveland, Canadian and Logan Counties.
As a council of governments, ACOG’s purpose is to aid local governments in planning for common needs, cooperating for mutual benefit and coordinating for sound regional development. Originally established in June of 1966, ACOG is one of 11 councils of governments in the State of Oklahoma and one of several hundred planning organizations across the country. ACOG both complements and supplements local government activities but is not itself a governmental unit. It does not possess power of legislation, enforcement or taxation.
