Logan County Joins the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission

    March 18, 2019

    The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) has approved Logan County as its newest member.

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

    The acceptance of Logan County as a member took place March 14, following a resolution previously approved by the Logan County Board of Commissioners to join MORPC.

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

    “We are delighted to become an important part of the vision and work of MORPC and their quest for great economic development in Central Ohio,”
    Logan County Board of Commissioners President Joe Antram
    “We’re pleased to welcome Logan County as an important part of a growing Central Ohio region. Counties are important local government partners for MORPC, so having Logan County at the table is critical to our work on regional issues and services.”
    MORPC Executive Director William Murdock

    The MORPC board meets 10 times a 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.
