About the Westside COG

The Westside Cities Council of Governments (Westside Cities COG) is a joint powers authority created by the cities of Beverly Hills, Culver City, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, the City of Los Angeles and the County of Los Angeles. The Board of Directors is comprised of a Delegate and Alternate from each of the local government entities, appointed by their respective jurisdictions. (City of Los Angeles participation and representation is focused on its western Council Districts, principally Districts 5 and 11; County of Los Angeles participation and representation is focused on its western Supervisorial Districts, principally Districts 3, 2 and 4.)

These members have partnered in a voluntary cooperative endeavor to forge consensus on policies and programs of regional significance that enhance the quality of daily life, sustain the environment and enrich the future for Westside residents, businesses, and visitors. The Westside Cities COG provides a forum for discussion and communication as well as formalized representation and advocacy with governmental agencies at all levels. The organization also monitors legislation as well as regional, state and federal funding and other collaborative opportunities to maximize services to the public at a minimum cost.

Priority issues established by the Board are subregional economic health, transportation and improved mobility, environmental issues/sustainability and land use, housing, social services and homeland security/safety.
