The purpose of the Smart Streets Policy is to ensure public investments in mobility are planned, selected, scoped, designed, constructed, and maintained in a manner that advances a Smart Region. To promote the acceptance and practice of Smart Streets, MORPC recommends that local jurisdictions and the state of Ohio develop and adopt Smart Streets policies to meet their needs and are compatible with this regional policy.
The following deliverables were developed by the Smart Region Task Force. The task force served as an ad-hoc committee to prepare Central Ohio communities for smart infrastructure investments by developing a shared vision for a “smart region.”
Th Smart Regional Task Force worked for nearly a three-year period to examine the potential benefits and unintended consequences of smart infrastructure investments. It is also worked to generate regional policies and guidelines that will lead to the creation of a smart region.
