Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission State of the Region

Apr 2, 2015 11:00 AM to Apr 2, 2015 3:00 PM
Hilton Downtown Columbus


MORPC’s annual State of the Region luncheon will be held on Thursday, April 2, 2015 at the Hilton Columbus Downtown.
Please join us as MORPC welcomes Jeffrey Tumlin, Principal and Director of Strategy of Nelson/Nygaard’s Consulting Associates, a San Francisco-based transportation planning and engineering firm that focuses on sustainable mobility, as this year’s State of the Region keynote.  For more than 20 years, Tumlin has developed transformative transportation plans throughout the world that accommodate millions of square feet of growth with no net increase in motor vehicle traffic. Tumlin has led award-winning plans in cities from Seattle and Vancouver to Moscow and Abu Dhabi.  Currently Nelson/Nygaard is working on several important Central Ohio projects including the NextGen Plan with COTA and the Multi-Modal Thoroughfare Plan with City of Columbus.

Along with Tumlin, MORPC Executive Director William Murdock and Yaromir Steiner, CEO of Steiner + Associates and chair of insight2050 Steering Committee, will provide an update on the next phase of insight2050.  Named the biggest urban planning story of 2014 by Columbus Underground, insight2050 is a public-private partnership that provides objective data and analysis to local governments, developers, and business leaders about the impact of the region’s significant population growth of the next 30+ years that is expected to be dramatically different from the past.

You will not want to miss this dynamic luncheon packed with highlights on our thriving region and visions about future transportation opportunities.  Seats are limited so purchase your ticket now.  

Early bird price tickets are available for $85 each or $850 per table of ten. After March 6, tickets will be available for $95 each or $950 per table of ten.
