Local Housing Action Agendas will translate Central Ohio’s regional housing vision and recommendations from the RHS into meaningful local action on housing issues across a diverse region. A Local Housing Action Agenda articulates how individual jurisdictions in Central Ohio will act on regional and local housing needs. The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission will lead this process in partnership with local jurisdictions.
