The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) is a voluntary association of central Ohio governments which envisions and embraces innovative directions in transportation, energy, housing, land use, the environment and economic prosperity. Our makeup is representative of the rural, urban, and suburban communities that comprise our burgeoning region. Our transformative programming and innovative public policy are evident throughout the 12 counties we serve.
MORPC’s history dates back to 1943 when it was first formed as the Franklin County Planning Commission. In 1969, its area was expanded resulting in the creation of MORPC. Over time MORPC has grown to reflect an expanded membership of 44 political subdivisions in and around Franklin, Delaware, Fairfield, Licking, Madison, Morrow, Pickaway, Ross and Union counties. MORPC’s area of interest also includes Fayette, Marion, and Knox counties resulting in a strong 12-county region. In recent years, as the region and nation have faced challenges such as an economic recession, unprecedented foreclosures, and rising energy costs, MORPC has solidified into a critical resource and forum for its members.
MORPC serves the fastest-growing region in Ohio and reaches across the boundaries of cities, villages, townships, and counties to improve the quality of life for all central Ohio residents. MORPC is committed to collaboration and developing bold new strategies that continue to make the region stand out both nationally and globally.
MORPC provides a unified voice with the strength to make central Ohio competitive in the global marketplace. MORPC is dedicated to attracting the best and the brightest, transforming existing communities, and promoting sustainability.
