The Oregon Heritage Commission is seeking comments from the public on its draft 2014-2019 Oregon Heritage Plan.


“The Heritage Commission serves as a catalyst and coordinator for more than 1,000 non-profit organizations that gather heritage and make it available to the public,” said commission coordinator Kyle Jansson. “The plan’s goals link the work of the Heritage Commission and the heritage organizations and initiatives across the state.”


The draft plan focuses on four areas: collections, economic development and tourism, communications, and education.


The plan was developed after commissioners reviewed four studies, including one by a Legislative Task Force on Heritage Vitality.


A link to the plan is available at . Comments are requested before Jan. 15. They may be sent to Jansson at  or to Oregon Heritage Commission, Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, 725 Summer St. NE, Suite C, Salem OR 97301-1266.
