MORPC Public Policy Agenda
MORPC’s 2013 Public Policy Agenda was shaped by members of the Regional Policy Roundtable, which is a group of diverse interests and representation chaired byMORPC Board Member Marilee Chinnici-Zuercher of the City of Dublin. The Public Policy Agenda aims to reflect the objectives and ideals of both MORPC’s members and the greater community for an even stronger 12-county central Ohio region.
By placing issues within three tiers (Lead, Collaborate and Follow), Roundtable members were able to create a strategic agenda that will be used to educate elected officials and stakeholders. The Public Policy Agenda is by no means considered a final document – it will evolve and change as important issues arise. MORPC will utilize this framework to begin proactively advocating for policies and opportunities to enhance the quality of life in central Ohio and advance the region.

New Reports on Shared Services
The Greater Ohio Policy Center has released a series of reports showing how in a span of 10 years, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) and local governments could work together to save up to $98.5 million. ODOT and counties, cities, villages and townships would save money by sharing equipment and collaborating with county engineers. Through salt-purchasing cooperatives and privatizing parts management, ODOT has already saved millions of dollars.
