Coalition seeks public opinion on Cincinnati historic preservation

The Cincinnati Historic Preservation Action Plan, led by a coalition of preservation organizations coordinated by Action Tank and creative partners, is inviting the public to express opinions on building preservation and development as it generates a roadmap for the future of historic Cincinnati landmarks.

Action Tank, a local creative think tank for new public policy solutions, seeks to change the narrative that preservation is a hindrance to development and a tool for gentrification. Toward that goal, it is holding a series of public input sessions in July and August. Action Tank will listen to public opinions on what works well and what can be improved, and on new solutions to use historic preservation more effectively.
