MVRPC Introduces Two New Regional Profiles

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 environmental quality and arts and culture.  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. These profiles are the result of the Going Places’ Implementation Tools and are available at

The following summarizes the two profiles:

Miami Valley Environmental Quality Regional Profile – Pollution does not follow political boundaries; nature has different borders. Assets like the Great Miami Buried Valley Aquifer span county lines. We share in the benefits of improving air quality in our area. When we all share the same environmental resources, we share responsibility for keeping it safe. This profile investigates the quality of the Miami Valley’s air, water, and land through several lenses.

Miami Valley Arts and Culture Regional Profile – The Miami Valley Region has a rich arts and cultural heritage dating back to the 1800s which continues today. The Region is home to a diverse range of arts and cultural experiences which attract visitors and enhance quality of life for our Region’s residents. This profile examines arts and cultural assets, arts vibrancy and engagement, and the economic impact of the arts in the Miami Valley. 

Established in 1964, the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission promotes collaboration among communities, stakeholders, and residents to advance regional priorities.  MVRPC is a forum and resource where the Board of Directors identifies priorities and develops public policy and collaborative strategies to improve quality of life throughout the Miami Valley Region.  MVRPC performs various regional planning activities, including air quality, water quality, transportation, land use, research and GIS.  As the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), MVRPC is responsible for transportation planning in Greene, Miami and Montgomery Counties and parts of northern Warren County.
