    December 14, 2020
    Village becomes MORPC’s 75th member

    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 has a rich history in Central Ohio, and we’re committed to working alongside village officials as they plan for their community’s future. Navigating the challenges of 2020 while planning for growth takes new partnerships and resources. Our team is excited to connect with Hebron as a leading community to deliver new services and opportunities.”
    MORPC Executive Director William Murdock

    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.

    “We are looking forward to being an active partner of MORPC. Hebron is moving forward to create development opportunities to better serve our residents and businesses, and we are a growing municipality that is looking to the future.”
    Hebron Village Administrator John Trujillo

    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.
