  • We’re looking at a region defined byeconomic ties: It is the Columbus – Marion – Chillicothe Metropolitan Area, as defined by the Office of Budget &amp; Management.Nature: This shows 3 Watersheds that flow into the Scioto Upper Scioto Lower Scioto Paint CreekThe 12:DelawareFairfieldFayetteFranklinKnoxLickingMadisonMarionMorrowPickawayRossUnion
  • There are quite a few efforts out there talking about our region’s future. MORPC’s even participating in some of them.
  • The technical names for the phases we’d used previously:Goals Development --- public comment phase now for hopeful July adoption. Scenario Development Tools Development Adoption &amp; ImplementationJust to be clear, here’s our scope of work:What to change? We conducted focus groups and an online, non-scientific, survey to generate goal ideas and identify major themes. We looked at the goals of other planning efforts and legislation to make sure our potential goals were:Fulfilling our designated role as a Metropolitan Planning OrganizationIn line with local, state, and federal priorities Out of this, we have draft goals to share, after we share the results of our survey.But first, you can also see where we’re headed with this effort:How to change? This is the technical work, where we collect the data to determine where we are today (the baseline) and how to track progress toward the goals into the future (the objectives). This is also where we get input on the make-up of the scenarios (see below) that will help us project progress toward some of these goals into the future.What-if scenariosBefore we can track progress to the goals, we have to look at where the region would end up by 2035. It’s a continuation of the technical work from the previous phase. As a part of our normal, four-year planning cycle, we run a land use model and travel demand model. That is, where communities grow and the impact that has on our transportation network. We already run a land use model that looks at development through 2035 based on:Local plansODOD regional population projections We will incorporate at least 1 other land use scenario based on a planning effort in MORPC’s Center for the Energy and Environment that is conducting several Balanced Growth plans in watersheds across the region that’s aimed at getting local governments to jointly consider the impact of their land use decisions on our streams and rivers.What we can change We present the scenario results and other research from our technical groups in order to help build consensus about what the region can change. This is where we get input to help prioritize the objectives developed earlier in the process and talk to communities about the tools and strategies they need to help achieve these objectives.Implement We share the tools and strategies developed in this process across the region so that MORPC and others can use them Indicators of progress toward these objectives and goals will also become a part of MORPC’s State of the Region report
  • Not scientific- self selected, no controlsSocial media used to encourage participation Goal of 10,000 – got 6,600 but 12,000 people touched itSome statsAverage age of respondents - 46 years oldMore 60 year olds responded than 20 year oldsHalf of respondents have lived in central Ohio for 25 years or more52% of the respondents were women; 48% men10% of respondents were minority26% of respondents born here14% came to central Ohio for work27% came for college and stayedResponse rate:# response, survey share compared to regional population shareDelaware - 586 (9% 8% )Fairfield - 260 (4% 7% )Fayette - 40 (1%  1%)Franklin - 4158 (66% 56%)Knox - 189 (3%  3%)Licking - 343 (5%8%)Madison - 94 (1%  2%)Marion - 51 (1%3%)Morrow - 80 (1%  2%)Pickaway - 267 (4% 3%) Ross - 112 (2%  4%)Union- 111 (2%  2%)Other- 115
  • Common Comments about Air Quality:Air Quality Alerts need to be better publicizedPeople do not change driving habits on Air Quality Alert days – because they do not have another way to get to where they need to go 75% aware of Air Quality Alert days 33% of the people aware of Air Quality days do something about it
  • This doesn’t indicate frequency or extent of recycling behavior. Some indicated in comments that they wish it were easier or more convenient to recycle.
  • Do you spend leisure time in the region’s rivers, streams and lakes?Over half do!Madison had highest response rate of yes at 72%Franklin was lowest at 46%Importance of streams mentioned often in commentsDo you drink unfiltered tap water?60% of the respondents said YES
  • Question was about using a car to get to work – a number of the respondents don’t work – college students, retirees, etc.
  • Of course, this could be as small as turning off a light switch. We did not measure the extent of energy conservation behavior.
  • What people said about attracting &amp; retaining businesses:Small businesses are importantGreen businesses are importantTaxes are too highTax incentives for businesses don’t always help communitiesCommunities need to collaborate to attract &amp; retain businesses
  • What people said about buying local foodLabeling/advertising helps identify Ohio grown foodFood purchasing decisions based on cost, convenience and qualityPeople like to support the local economy
  • Have you lost your home due to default or foreclosure on your mortgage?2% (122) of the respondents have lost their home due to a default or foreclosure
  • Transit and carpooling are relatively low – but with the price of gas expected to be over $4, and the tipping point of people wanting to find alternatives to drive at $4 --- we need to prepare to meet future travel needs
  • Over ½ say YESComments about congestion:Flexible work schedules would help reduce traffic congestionCentral Ohio needs more comprehensive public transit systemCentral Ohio does not have traffic congestion problems compared to other regions
  • Comments about safe drivers:Distracted drivers are problemGenerally safe drivers, but there are some bad applesNeed more enforcementProblems driving in bad weatherDrivers not considerate of cyclistsCyclists and drivers both need to learn how to Share the Road --- both drivers and cyclists had complaints about each other
  • Want them all--- mode choice is importantThese total to 100%Complete Streets PolicyOther Suggestions:Star Trek transportersPersonal jetpacksFlying carpetsHover craftsHorse and buggyPneumatic tubesCatapults
  • People that aren’t near services say will walk to themPeople that are near them, drive to them How important is it that your house is near the following facilities?Job (3.93)Stores (3.92)Parks (3.78)Medical Facilities (3.68)Schools (3.22)Public Transportation (2.09)Daycare (2.04)
  • We asked some big, open-ended questions about central Ohio: What people like most What people like least And what they think sets central Ohio apart from other placesItems discussed ran the gamut, ranging from potholes to football. We had to do a lot of sorting and coding to find major themes.Like MostThey like the people. (Keywords: people, diversity, friend, family, community, home - 2,630 )They like the amenities and quality of life available here. (shop, arts, restaurant, culture, amenities - 1,082,&quot;cost of living&quot;, &quot;quality of life&quot; - 664 )We heard a lot that people like the “small town feel” with access to the amenities of a bigger city.Like LeastThey want alternative modes of transportation. (Keywords:bus, rail, transit - 1,415;traffic, congestion, travel, commute -936;road, parking, highway, street, interstate, interchange, ramp, merge –691;sidewalks, bicycling (and variants)222 )Others brought up the weather and the region’s flatness (Keywords: winter, weather, climate – 722; flat -137 )Sets Us ApartOSU &amp; the Buckeyes came up in all three questions. But many seem to find some regional identity there. (Keywords: university, Ohio State, OSU – 792)People see the major institutions like OSU, state government, Battelle, Nationwide, Chemical Abstracts, etc. as major parts of our identity, creating a local economy that’s better able to weather hard economic times (though people are still feeling it). (Keywords: capital, capitol, government289 )
  • Reduce energy consumption to decrease production of greenhouse gasesPreserve and protect natural resources to maintain a healthy ecosystemPosition central Ohio to attract economic opportunity to prosper as a region and compete globallyBuild sustainable neighborhoods to improve residents’ quality of lifeIncrease collaboration to maximize the return on public expenditures Use public investments to benefit the health, safety and welfare of all people

  • After we’ve solicited input on the draft goals, they’ll go up for approval. We’re also working to identify objectives that would measure progress towards these goals in parallel.We’ve also begun much of the technical work to establish the baseline data.How to change? This is the technical work, where we collect the data to determine where we are today (the baseline) and how to track progress toward the goals into the future (the objectives). This is also where we get input on the make-up of the scenarios (see below) that will help us project progress toward some of these goals into the future.What-if scenariosBefore we can track progress to the goals, we have to look at where the region would end up by 2035.
