Truro Township Joins the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission
The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) has approved Truro Township as its newest member.
MORPC is the Central Ohio regional council for more than 65 local governments 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 Truro Township as a member took place June 13 following a resolution previously approved by the Board of Township Trustees of Truro Township to join MORPC.
The township’s membership will provide the opportunity for one representative to serve as voting member at MORPC board meetings.
We’re pleased to welcome Truro Township as an important part of a growing Central Ohio region,” said MORPC Executive Director William Murdock. “Townships are important local government partners for MORPC, so having Truro Township at the table is critical to our work on regional issues and services.”
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.
