Seneca-Clemson MPO makes sense

August 22, 2012

With every Census, population increases move Oconee County closer to what the federal government calls metropolitan planning zones. A pro active reaction by the Seneca City Council may save the city from some day being gobbled up by a metropolitan planning organization in which the larger city Greenville holds sway.

Greg Dietterick, the Seneca city administrator, had little trouble convincing the mayor and council of a better alternative. That’s partnering with Clemson to create an MPO for the two cities and surrounding unincorporated areas of Oconee and Pickens counties. Dietterick says this is important when it comes to decisions and funds for road work and transportation services.

To make this happen, the Governor’s approval is required.

That’s our view. What’s yours?
