Alle-Kiski Intergovernmental Council
The Alle-Kiski Intergovernmental Council (AK IGC) is a voluntary organization of member governments which meet for the purpose of discussing, planning, and undertaking joint, intergovernmental activities. The first-of-its-kind in Westmoreland County, the Council serves as a forum for the identification of intergovernmental issues, facilitates agreements and actions for specific programs and projects, and administers these activities as agreed to by its member governments.
The Alle-Kiski Intergovernmental Council stems from the Planning District process, where 11 Alle-Kiski communities participated in a number of land use, mobility, and intergovernmental exercises to align county strategies with local priorities. As outlined in the county's comprehensive plan, Reimagining Our Westmoreland, the Planning Districts approach is an effort to implement many of the strategies and actions at the local level.
Since the completion of Remaking Our Westmoreland - A Plan for the Alle-Kiski District in November 2020, the County's first sub-regional plan, the eight communities of Allegheny Township, Arnold, East Vandergrift, Lower Burrell, New Kensington, Upper Burrell Township, Vandergrift, and West Leechburg have since committed to working together in an intergovernmental capacity, with the County providing administrative support to get started.
