Western Licking County is a wild place these days. While already experiencing growth, one year ago they learned Intel intended to build two fabs and attract suppliers and other supportive development. The Columbus Metropolitan Club (CMC) hosted a luncheon and discussion panel focusing on the future of Western Licking County after Intel’s arrival, entitled “Licking County Plans Its Ideal Intel Future.” The panel featured members of the planning team; Jamie Greene AIA, FAICP, principal at planning NEXT; Jennifer Roberts, executive director of the Thomas J. Evans Foundation; Rick Platt, President & CEO of the Heath-Newark-Licking County Port Authority; and moderated by Benjamin Lanka, business editor for the Columbus Dispatch. Panelists discussed housing, economic development, transportation, and other topics important to the communities in Licking County.
