  • More than forty years in historic preservation programs has shown that the most effective preservation takes place when folks work at the local level to protect and wisely use their historic and archaeological resources. An effective hp program also recognizes the partnerships between various levels of government, (local, state and federal) that share the goal of identifying, evaluating and protecting historic resources.
  • It was this spirit of partnership that contributed to the creation of the Certified Local Government Program. Approved in Ohio in 1985, the program has since certified 48 local governments, ranging from small villages, like Madison, Mt. Pleasant and New Richmond, to the states largest cities. The list of CLG’s is on your handouts.
  • Certified Local Governments can conduct a wide range of historic preservation activities (including a survey of historic resources and nomination of properties to the National Register of Historic Places (in close cooperation with the State Historic Preservation Office and the National Park Service. In order to become a CLG a political jurisdiction must have the following: A historic preservation ordinance designed to protect historic resources and offer guidance to those wishing to make changes to historic buildings A qualified design review board or commission consisting of at least five members who serve to designate historic properties and to review proposed changes to the historic environment A procedure for identifying historic properties by which these properties can be surveyed, recorded and designated locally and nominated to the National Register of Historic Places A public participation program which invites and encourages citizens to participate in the communities historic preservation program The steps to certification are listed on the back of the handout entitled Certified Local Governments
  • Once certified, local governments may compete annually for grants to carry our historic preservation activities. Under the provisions of the National Historic Preservation Act, 10% of the annual appropriate to Ohio is set aside for CLG’s Since 2004 Ohio has awarded over $400,000 in matching grants for historic preservation projects in 22 difference communities. Grants are awarded on a 70/30 matching basis and the match may consist of any combination of cash, in-kind and donated services.
  • Our web site contains extensive information about the Certified Local Government Program. A packet of information, including the program application can be sent to you upon request. A recent addition to the web site is our model hp ordinance. Our online newsletter, The Network, provides information about other CLG’s, grants awarded and articles addressing subjects that enable your board or commission to perform better.
  • Upon certification we will also provide your board or commission with four free hours of training at the time and location of your convenience. We are also available to consult on local historic preservation issues and to answer questions about local preservation legislation and architectural design review. CLG programs are formally evaluated at the end of the first program year and every four years after that to insure that they continue to comply with CLG program requirements.
