First Statewide Preservation Connection coming to OTR on August 12

Here’s some information about Preservation Connection: Cincinnati which will be held at the Art Academy of Cincinnati in OTR on Friday, August 12 from 8:30am to 4pm. Here are some details about this affordable and informative event:

Preservation Ohio is sponsoring, with the assistance of the Cincinnati Preservation Association, an incredible one-day conference on the latest issues about and tools for historic preservation in Ohio.

Connect with People: The day-long event will feature both an “unconference” portion, where participants will be able to engage in open discussion to identify preservation challenges and opportunities in Ohio in the early part of the 21st century, as well more traditional break-out sessions.

Connect with Ohio: Learn about what’s happening in preservation and revitalization across the state of Ohio, including the first in-depth, in-person presentation on the newly-renewed and revised Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credit.

Connect with Ideas: Preservation Connection:Cincinnati will bring access to information about current preservation and revitalization challenges and tools with a decidedly Ohio focus. Included among topics to be presented are the following:

  • Hands-on experience in receivership as an option to rescue troubled properties.
  • Combining downtown and neighborhood revitalization initiatives
  • “Thinking Outside the Fence” – connecting cemeteries with heritage tourism and neighborhood revitalization
  • City-wide building stabilization programs
  • Approaches to preservation advocacy
  • The connection between mass transit and preservation

Connect with the Law: In what is likely the first of its kind, there will be a seminar given on historic preservation law from an Ohio perspective. Entitled “Law and Historic Preservation: Terminology, Techniques, and Tools,” the workshop will focus on federal and Ohio laws impacting historic resources, and will pay focused attention on receivership, donation of historic conservation or preservation easements, and innovative developments in local historic preservation and design review ordinances in Ohio. Non-attorneys are welcome to attend as a part of the conference, and are not required to pay the $35 CLE registration fee; attorneys seeking CLE credit should register specifically for that event separately from the rest of the conference.

Ohio Attorneys: This course has been approved by the Ohio Supreme Court Commission on Continuing Legal Education for 1.50 total CLE credit hours instruction.
