A Future for Ohio's Past: A Historic Preservation Plan for Ohioans 2010-2014

A Future For Ohio's Past: A Plan for Ohioans 2010-2014 was prepared by the State Historic Preservation Office in partnership with numerous organizations and agencies. Key features include historic preservation goals shaped by active community involvement, preservation success stories from throughout the state, a variety of historic preservation information and a synopsis of Ohio’s historic and cultural resources.

The core of the plan is a set of six goals that reflect the preservation priorities of the citizens of Ohio. The goals, challenges and opportunities listed are the result of a statewide online survey conducted in 2008 and represent a wide range of preservation interests across the state. The goals are meant to foster state, regional and local preservation planning for five years after which the plan will be revised based on current preservation priorities.

We encourage you to read the plan, share it with others whose work affects historic properties and we invite you, your community, group or organization to adopt, pursue, or modify one or more of the goals and to apply them to your preservation efforts. We also welcome your comments on the current plan and suggestions for the future.
