Chillicothe Joins the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission
The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) has approved the City of Chillicothe, in Ross County, as a new MORPC member.
MORPC is Central Ohio’s regional council with members comprised of counties, cities, villages, townships and regional organizations.
The acceptance of the City of Chillicothe as a member took place Feb.13, 2020, following a resolution to join MORPC that was previously approved by the city.
The commission serves its members through planning, direct service, public policy information, innovative programming and intergovernmental coordinating services in the areas of transportation, sustainability, land use, energy conservation and housing.
The city’s membership will provide the opportunity for two representatives to serve as voting members on the MORPC board, which 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 and create solutions to shared regional challenges.
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.
