NCWRPC can assist in the development of intergovernmental agreements, including border cooperation agreements and planning. Intergovernmental agreements can be as simple as agreeing to hold joint meetings of planning committees, to share police and fire services, or as complex as sharing tax revenues and redefining communal borders. Two types of fundamental agreements are allowed at the s.66.023 -s.66.30 WI Stats. Other specialized agreements are possible under a large number of specific statutes. The agreement may change borders because of a WisDOA provision. The change is based on a detailed plan. The statutes allow for the integration of many other planning instruments. These agreements provide flexibility for annexation, zoning, revenue sharing and other inter-communal activities.

The NCWRPC is a forum for communicating between different counties and municipalities on common and cross-border issues. NCWRPC is described by the U.S. Economic Development Administration as an Economic Development District and WisDOT as a rural transportation planning organization, to coordinate economic development and transportation strategies on a regional basis with cooperative efforts to address local problems.
A contract between local authorities to define borders or other communal services. Limits are set and the parties agree either to maintain them or to allow growth to a final limit. Agreements may also include revenue allocation provisions. The framework is NCWRPC`s master plan for the physical development of the region. This plan establishes a framework for coherence and coordination in the development of land use plans. The NCWRPC is available on request for technical studies. In the past, NCWRPC has completed studies such as the merger of ambulance services, population consolidation studies, an economic impact analysis and a study on youth detentions.
