Preservation Ohio seeks public input on mission, goals

Preservation Ohio, Ohio's statewide preservation network, is seeking public comment on how it can better serve Ohioans in the areas of historic preservation, downtown and neighborhood revitalization, and heritage tourism.

The short online survey will help the non-profit better address its goals in the areas of local assistance, advocacy and protection, and building a strong statewide preservation community.

Between October 2008 and October 2009, the organization has named 15 specific achievements, including its outreach work to over 20 Ohio communities, its involvement in legal issues in which preservation issues are being considered, and its development of strong social media platforms that allow users to network and to share resources.

Survey takers may remain anonymous; however, those who enter their name and contact information will be entered into a drawing for a limited edition set of "MOO cards" showcasing the 2009 List of Ohio's Most Endangered Historic Sites.

The survey will be open through November 5, and results will be released the following week.
