FRAMEWORK is an unprecedented initiative created to align communities on a desired future. Licking County is part of a central Ohio region that is anticipated to continue experiencing significant growth and development. The potential for change was given a major boost in early 2022 when Intel announced it would build two leading-edge processor factories in Licking County. The plants come with a $20 billion investment from Intel that will yield 3,000 jobs.
FRAMEWORK will produce a collaborative vision, addressing economics, land use, character of place, transportation, and other topics. The initiative includes 15 jurisdictions who will focus on understanding the impacts―and identifying the potential benefits―of the anticipated investments of from the public and private sectors, catalyzed by the investment from Intel. The objective is to work with these Licking County communities who will be most immediately impacted to establish a development framework and strategic approach to managing change to ensure that the communities remain healthy and are successfully positioned for the future.
