Regional Silicon Heartland Web Hub

The January 2022 announcement that Intel would build a world-class set of semiconductor manufacturing facilities in New Albany – the largest economic development project in Ohio’s history – created excitement about its potential to transform the region and state’s economic future toward a diversified, high-tech innovation economy with international impact.

Central Ohio is already experiencing historic growth, and the Intel development will rely on smart community planning and a strong local infrastructure system.

MORPC will continue to be a resource to local communities, businesses, educational institutions and non-profits as more details of the Intel development unfold – serving as a convener of important regional conversations.
