Greater Ohio, Brookings blog on Restoring Prosperity

Marc Lefkowitz  |  10/14/08 @ 1:20pm

Land use policy reform groups Greater Ohio and the Brookings Institution are collaborating on Restoring Prosperity, a framework for reinvesting in Ohio's cities. The effort now has a blog, and its first post is about incentives for regionalism:

The high number of government entities in Ohio is inefficient and argues for the need to bridge the gap between communities so we can compete on a national and international level. Implementation of new state policies that incentivize jurisdictional collaboration, streamline local governments and create more effective regional planning and economic development groups is a key part of a Restoring Prosperity policy agenda.

The post also cites OSU professor Mark Partridge's paper, Our Joint Future: Rural-Urban Interdependence in 21st Century Ohio which considers the financial consequences of turning away from regionalism.
