Dayton, OH – The Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission (MVRPC) is pleased to introduce two new profiles to our ongoing Regional Profile Series. The profiles present data and analyses on transportation, and business and industry topics. These profiles provide insight on where the Region stands and serve as a foundation for future planning, coordination, and project development efforts. Each profile has two elements: a print version and a dynamic, web-based profile. MVRPC also developed interactive maps that allow you to see more detailed data for different parts of the Region. These profiles are the result of Going Places’ Implementation Tools. Links to these maps are included in the profiles. MVRPC’s Regional Profiles are available at http://www.mvrpc.org/regional-profiles.
The following summarizes the two profiles:
Miami Valley Transportation Regional Profile – The Miami Valley Region is served by an extensive transportation network system. Understanding this system gives insight into our Region’s levels of mobility, accessibility and connectivity. This profile examines transportation modes and patterns including roadways, transit networks, bike trails, freight, commuting, and safety in Greene, Miami, Montgomery, and northern Warren counties.
Miami Valley Business & Industry Regional Profile – Our Region’s economy is made up of businesses and jobs of diverse industry sectors. Influenced largely by the national economy, the Region has experienced both dynamic industry sector growth and decline over the last 12 years. This profile looks at the components of regional economic activity between 2004 and 2016, with a special focus on the top sectors of the Region: government, health care, and manufacturing.
