Cape and Islands
The Martha's Vineyard Commission works especially closely with its sister agencies – the Cape Cod Commission and the Nantucket Planning and Economic Development Commission – to better coordinate planning in the overall region.
The MVC is one of thirteen members of the Massachusetts Association of Regional Planning Agencies (MARPA). At its monthly all-day meetings held in Boston, the executive directors of these agencies coordinate efforts to improve planning, interaction with state agencies, and technical services, as well as to promote funding and legislation favoring the regions of the Commonwealth.
The Northeast and the Nation
The MVC is a member of the New England Association of Regional Planning Councils (NEARC) and works with the National Association of Regional Councils (NARC), two agencies that work to promote the interests of the nation’s regions, such as ensuring that the Northeast gets its fair share of transportation funding.
