We are pleased to announce that the 2011 City-wide Historic Survey has been selected to receive an Oregon Heritage Excellence Award as an outstanding example of how to integrate historic resources and historic building survey into larger planning efforts in Oregon. The Oregon Heritage Excellence Awards recognize individuals, business, and organizations for their outstanding efforts on behalf of Oregon Heritage.
A big thank you to Painter Preservation (Diana Painter, Chrisanne Beckner), Oregon City Historic Review Board, Chris Dunlop, Oregon City GIS specialist and the Oregon City Planning Division for pursuing this unique project. As of today, Oregon City has surveyed all the structures located within the Urban Growth Boundary that are over 50 years old. This information will help inform future planning efforts such as the Transportation System Plan and the South End Concept Plan and better incorporate heritage planning into the long-range planning process. The survey data will soon be accessible in OCWebMaps and can be used by consultants, staff and the general public
