Hebron Joins the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission
The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission has approved the Village of Hebron, in Licking County, as a new MORPC member.
MORPC is Central Ohio’s regional council for local governments – with members comprised of counties, cities, villages, townships and regional organizations. The acceptance of the Village of Hebron as a member took place Dec. 10, 2020, following a resolution to join MORPC that was previously approved by the village Nov. 4, 2020.
Hebron’s membership provides the opportunity for a representative to serve as a voting member 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. Village Administrator John Trujillo will be serving as the village’s representative to MORPC.
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. 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.
Hebron joins the other Licking County communities of Pataskala, Granville, Johnstown, Etna Township, Granville Township, as well as the Licking County Soil and Water Conservation District as MORPC members.
In addition to the village becoming MORPC’s 75th member, the commission has retained 100% of its members for 2021. To learn more about the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission, visit www.morpc.org.
