2006 Ohio Historic Preservation Office Award Recipients

Village of Glendale

A 19th century suburb of Cincinnati noted for its architecture, the village of Glendale was named a National Historic Landmark in 1976 -- the highest designation given to historic places by the federal government. Six years ago the idea of publishing guidelines for alterations and new construction in the Glendale Historic District came up in the course of updating the communitys master plan. To preserve its National Historic Landmark status and aid property owners in working with the commission that reviews changes in the district, the village decided to develop and publish guidelines for alterations and new construction. The resulting publication was a four-year project by Glendale's Planning and Historic Preservation Commission, village council, and mayor. Commission member Jack Howard spearheaded the project. An artist and student of architecture, he drew many of the illustrations, and developed the format with the help of commission member Beth Sullebarger and others in the community. The result is a handsome publication that guides property owners step-by-step through the process of making informed decisions about changes and improvements.
