In the beginning of July, the Chip-In Team had another opportunity to present the idea and process behind the app. The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) provides a unified voice with the strength to make Central Ohio competitive in the global marketplace. MORPC holds a monthly membership meeting that a Chip-In member was invited to speak during the meeting. It has been important to get the idea out to the community and gain feedback because the community will be the ones transformed and impacted by the app itself. The commission is made up of diverse interests and representation of the Central Ohio region including local governments, businesses, and non-profits. The group’s mission is to sustain a strong, prosperous 12-county Central Ohio. It was important for Chip-In to be present within the meeting because the app provides another outlet to connect MOPRC and its affiliates through the involvement in community actions and social media outreach.
Team Chip-In has another opportunity to obtain feedback at a community event next week. The team will have a display set up during the Fifth by Northwest Area Commission‘s National Night Out Celebration. This event will take place at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church on 5th Avenue from 6:30-8:30 on Tuesday, August 4th. The event will have presentations from two candidates running for Columbus City Council, door prizes, a bike ride by Yay Bikes!, food trucks, displays of interest, and some live performances and music. Stop by the display to voice your opinion about the app!
