Programs and Services
The 2020 – 2050 Active Transportation Plan (ATP) advances the regional priorities of the Metropolitan Transportation Plan and helps communities within the Metropolitan Planning Organization area plan for and implement projects that include pedestrian, bicycle, and transit infrastructure in the region.
We let you know when air pollution levels are high in Central Ohio and how to protect your health and your loved ones. We also work to make the air in Central Ohio safer to breathe through education and by working with local governments and businesses to reduce health-impacting emissions.
The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission — in partnership with local communities, parks districts, and grassroots organizations — provides residents and visitors with information on where they can safely and legally access the water for paddle sports in Central Ohio’s neighborhoods.
There are more than 100 miles of water to paddle along the Alum Creek, Big Darby Creek, Big Walnut Creek, Olentangy River, and Scioto River within Delaware, Franklin, and Pickaway counties.
Central Ohio’s streams have plentiful public parks judiciously spaced along the waterways to create an unrivaled, urban paddling experience. Communities, parks districts, and grassroots organizations are more regularly building water access points and offering opportunities for people to paddle in their own neighborhoods.
We administer the application and selection process for the Clean Ohio Conservation Fund in Franklin County through the District 3 Natural Resources Assistance Council (NRAC). This program funds projects that preserve open spaces, sensitive ecological areas, and stream corridors.
Competitive Advantage Projects is a partnership between MORPC and One Columbus to advance strategic infrastructure investments across the Columbus Region. The goal of the initiative is to prioritize important infrastructure projects and work toward making the projects a reality.
