Every five years the Oregon State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) in partnership with the general public, interest and advocacy groups, and other government agencies completes a statewide historic preservation plan that identifies program priorities. The Oregon SHPO is asking for your feedback on our programs and the information collected will be used in the creation of the 2017-2022 Oregon State Historic Preservation Plan. Our short survey asks for feedback on our services and gives participants the opportunity to identify how the office’s resources should be allocated for future preservation efforts. To give your input please visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ORHeritagePartnerSurvey.

Oregon Heritage, a Division of Oregon State Parks, includes the Oregon SHPO. The Oregon SHPO locally administers National Park Service (NPS) programs created by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended, including the identification and designation of historic properties and archaeological sites; tax and grant programs; and the Certified Local Government Program (CLG), a partnership program between local jurisdictions and the state and federal government. The SHPO also coordinates closely with Oregon Heritage programs, including the Heritage Commission and Main Street, among others. The SHPO office is funded in part through a grant from NPS. A copy of the 2011-2016 plan can be found here: http://www.oregon.gov/OPRD/HCD/SHPO/docs/historic_preservation_plan_11-16.pdf .
