The Heritage Commission is comprised of nine people representing Oregon's heritage and geographical diversity who have been appointed by the Governor. There are nine advisory representatives from state agencies and statewide organizations. The mission of the Oregon Heritage Commission is to secure, sustain, and enhance Oregon's heritage by ensuring coordination of heritage initiatives by public and private organizations; advocacy on its behalf; education of the public about its extent and value; and promotion and celebration of its diversity.

Commission meetings are open to the public and their agendas include opportunities for public comment. The meeting site is accessible to people with disabilities. Special accommodations for the meeting - including translation services - may be made by calling (503) 986?0690 at least 72 hours prior to the start of the meeting.

Last year was the first year of awarding for the Oregon Main Street Revitalization Grant program. Reedsport Main Street was awarded a grant to rehabilitate five upstairs apartments in the Burdick building downtown. Bringing apartments into Downtown would increase the number of people who would shop in local stores and eat and drink at local restaurants. Read more about the project and the impact it has had on Reedsport's Downtown by visiting here<https://oregonheritage.wordpress.com/2018/07/13/upper-floor-housing-sparks-investment-in-downtown-reedsport/>.


Oregon Heritage, a division of Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, awarded 13 grants totaling $206,000 for historic properties and archaeology projects. Five of the grants were awarded in the Diamonds in the Rough category. This grant funds façade enhancements that restore the historic character of the property. The other 8 grants were in the Preserving Oregon category for properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places and for archaeology projects.
Funded projects:

-          Façade restoration grants in Astoria, Cottage Grove, Dallas, Lebanon, and The Dalles.

-          An archaeology project in Lincoln City.

-           Preservation of nine historic properties in Astoria, Creswell, Clackamas County, Deschutes County, Linn County, Portland, and Stayton.

These grants are approved by the State Advisory Committee on Historic Preservation, a nine-member group that reviews nominations to the National Register of Historic Places. The members are professionally recognized in the fields of history, architecture, archaeology and other related disciplines.

Many institutions use some level of mechanical intervention to control relative humidity and moisture contents in interior preservation environments. This session will explore various types of mechanical intervention, including stand- alone equipment and mechanical dehumidification and humidification, as well as the appropriate use and applications of different types of equipment and systems in different settings. Discussion will include risks to building structures, setting appropriate goals in different climate zones, and considerations for disaster response and recovery.
