The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) announced this afternoon that the organization will be purchasing the building located at 99 E. Main Street in Downtown Columbus, where it plans to relocate in November 2012. This building was the previous home of planning firm Karlsberger, which closed in June.
MORPC has been located in The Brewery District since 2007 when they moved into their current facilities at 111 Liberty Street, with long term plans to eventually purchase a building for a dedicated headquarters.
“Currently it’s the belief of the Building Committee and key staff that this building will fit the needs of MORPC long into the future,” says Bill Yaple, MORPC Building Committee Chair. “It puts the MORPC offices closer to transportation options that the public needs in reaching our services. This building is also close to Franklin County operations which are a major interest holder in MORPC operations. It has always been the belief of the building committee and MOPRC that we should be within the innerbelt.”
