The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) officially welcomed the village of West Jefferson, in Madison County, as the newest member of MORPC. The acceptance of the village of West Jefferson as a member took place Nov. 9, 2023, following a resolution to join MORPC that was previously approved by the village.
MORPC is Central Ohio’s planning commission representing a diverse alliance of members comprised of counties, cities, villages, townships, and regional organizations. The guides and facilitates investments in transportation and infrastructure and acts as a hub to drive capacity building and regional synergy, creating greater value for the entire region. MORPC informs policy choices and provides community resources that shape mobility, land-use, environmental sustainability, and housing stability.
The village’s membership provides for a representative to serve as a voting member on the commission, which meets 10 times a year to discuss important regional issues, guide the direction of MORPC’s work, network with local leaders to discuss problems and create solutions to shared regional challenges.
Additional benefits of membership include grants and funding opportunities, educational forums, technical assistance and data, policy development, community assistance and long-range planning.
