The Hampshire Council of Governments is a consortium of
towns solving local problems by acting regionally. In 1998 the
residents of Hampshire County voted to charter the Hampshire
Council of Governments as the successor to Hampshire County.
We are a body politic and corporate; our charter ratified by
the voters and by Massachusetts General Law 34B, §20(b). Our
offices are still in the same place they have been since 1662, at
the corner of King and Main in downtown Northampton.
