    February 20, 2020
    City becomes MORPC’s 73rd member

    The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) has approved the City of Circleville, in Pickaway 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 Circleville as a member took place Feb.13, 2020, following an ordinance to join MORPC that was previously approved by the city.

    “We are very happy to join a professional organization that provides us with more resources and access to critical information as we compete to strengthen our local economy.”
    Circleville Mayor Don McIlroy

    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.

    “Circleville is a vital part of a thriving Central Ohio region, and we’re excited for their leadership on regional issues. We look forward to bringing additional services to their residents and businesses and hope to be a resource in planning for economic growth and better transportation.”
    MORPC Executive Director William Murdock

    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.
