In 2007, City of Columbus Mayor Michael B. Coleman joined with elected officials from 12 other local jurisdictions in developing and signing the Central Ohio Green Pact. The Pact represents a multi-jurisdictional commitment to make our region more sustainable starting with policies that enhance and protect the quality of life, environment and economic vitality. The Pact outlines ten general values communities should hold to preserve natural resources, to increase green space, reduce our consumption of raw materials and increase recycling.

Now coordinated by MORPC, the network of Pact members includes the following local governments and organizations:

How to Join
There is no deadline for communities to join the Central Ohio Green Pact. After your mayor, council, township trustees, or county commissioners pass a resolution to adopt the pact, contact Rachael Beeman, rbeeman@morpc.org at 614-233-4123, to confirm your membership by officially signing the Pact document at the Summit on Sustainability & the Environment.

In 2017, the meetings will begin at 9:30 on the given dates and will rotate locations. Please contact Rachael Beeman for more details about each meeting and if you have any reports you would like to submit.
