The purpose of the meeting is to adopt bylaws, elect officers, set regular meeting times, discuss administration of the FCTID, and begin to discuss potential projects.

    “We are excited that Franklin County will have a new means of collaboration to advance priority transportation projects. These have been very successful in many counties across the state.”
    MORPC Transportation & Infrastructure Development Director Thea Walsh

    The creation of a TID by Franklin County will assist and provide greater efficiencies to local transportation efforts, and provide more opportunities for collaboration between local governments, the Ohio Department of Transportation, MORPC, private enterprises and developers, and neighboring communities in advancing transportation improvements and projects.  Many projects may also benefit economic development and job creation, advancing the long-term prosperity of communities across Franklin County.
