Rural Forum – Raising the Fun Factor: Revitalization that Accelerates Value

The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) is Central Ohio’s regional council with 87 local governments and community partners. We take pride in bringing communities of all sizes and interests together to collaborate on best practices and plan for the future growth and sustainability of our region.

Our forum is part of a four-part series of Rural Workshops designed to address challenges and opportunities for our diverse communities located in Central Ohio.
