KVCOG was founded in 1967 as an “unincorporated association” known as the North Kennebec Regional Planning Commission (NKRPC) under Maine law that provided for the formation of regional planning commissions. NKRPC was incorporated as a Maine Nonprofit Corporation in September 1975. KVCOG was incorporated in October 1994 as a Maine Nonprofit Corporation pursuant to enabling legislation.

NKRPC and KVCOG were consolidated and merged in October 1996 with KVCOG being the surviving corporation. KVCOG received its IRS 501(c)(3) charitable designation in June 1998.

KVCOG is a municipal services corporation owned and operated by and for the benefit of its members. KVCOG’s region includes Kennebec, Somerset and western Waldo counties with a population over 180,000. KVCOG is one of seven federally designated Economic Development Districts in Maine and a State designated Regional Planning and Development District.
