Hocking County Joins the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission

    October 2, 2018

    The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) has approved Hocking County as its newest board member. The acceptance of Hocking County as a member took place September 13 following a resolution approved by the Hocking County Board of Commissioners to join MORPC.

    The county’s membership will provide the opportunity for two representatives to serve as a voting member at MORPC board meetings.

    "I was fortunate to have worked with MORPC in previous roles in Central Ohio. I recognized the need for the kind of help MORPC can provide when I arrived in Hocking County and had hoped to find a way to join the organization. I am ecstatic to be a full member and plan to take full advantage of this opportunity!"
    Hocking County CIC Executive Director Joy Davis
    “Thus far, I have been blown away with the assistance that is available from MORPC. Our meetings have been eye opening and have brought forth ideas we can adopt.”
    Logan Mayor Greg Fraunfelter

    “We are pleased to welcome Hocking County as an important part of the growing Central Ohio metropolitan area,” MORPC Executive Director William Murdock said. “Counties are vital local government partners for MORPC, so having Hocking County at the table is critical to our work on regional issues and services.”

    MORPC is a voluntary association of more than 60 local governments in Central Ohio serving the region through planning, direct service, public policy information and innovative programming and intergovernmental coordinating services in the areas of transportation, land use, energy conservation, the environment and housing.

    The MORPC board meets 10 times each year to discuss important regional issues, guide the direction of MORPC’s work, network with local leaders to discuss common problems, create solutions to shared regional challenges and provide input on funding decisions.  Additional benefits of serving on MORPC’s board include grants and funding opportunities, educational forums, training and seminars, technical assistance and data, and policy development.
