Village of Granville Joins the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission

    April 13, 2020
    Becomes MORPC’s 74th member

    The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) has approved the Village of Granville, 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 Granville as a member took place April 9, 2020, following a resolution to join MORPC that was previously approved by the village.

    “We are excited about our MORPC membership and the capabilities it brings to bear in conducting the business of the village. Granville has a healthy agenda of initiatives for the year, and we look forward to leveraging the MORPC toolkit to see them through.”
    Granville Village Manager Herb Koehler

    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 village’s membership will provide 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.

    “Granville is the quintessential hometown focused on a high quality of life now and in the future, and MORPC can serve as a helpful resource for both community leaders and the public alike. As we move ahead with regional plans and priorities, Granville will be an important voice at the table.”
    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.
