Historic Preservation Update

Ohio Historic Preservation 2019 Update

The City of Kent’s Community Development Department is required to complete an environmental review of all activities that are assisted with state and/or federal funding. A part of this environmental review includes sending information about the activity to the Ohio Historic Preservation Office (OHPO) if the activity involves a structure that is 50 years of age or older.

The City has a programmatic agreement with the OHPO which identifies certain activities that are exempt from OHPO review. For activities that are considered exempt, the City compiles a list each year and makes it available to the public through the City’s website. View the 2019 exempt activities here.
