Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission

by Bernice Cage

The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) reintroduces their Greenways website—www.centralohiogreenways.com—with a whole new look. Interactive and user-friendly, the website serves as a source of information and updates on central Ohio’s trails for everyone to use.

Central Ohio Greenways is an extensive network of trails that wind throughout central Ohio. The trails create an irreplaceable experience by blending the natural beauty of our scenic rivers with the diverse neighborhoods and attractions of the city.

The redesigned website now features an interactive map for all of the Greenway Trails and where further development of these trails will take place. Additionally, it offers information on each of the trails, alerts about current happenings affecting the trails, an opportunity to get involved with your local watershed protection group and community resources.

“We are very excited about this website,” said Amanda McEldowney, MORPC Associate Planner. “Trail users have been asking for an interactive map. The ultimate goal is that the new website will be a one-stop resource for trail users.”
