2007 Ohio Historic Preservation Office Award Recipients

Senator J. Kirk Schuring and former Representative Charles E. Calvert for their leadership on behalf of enacting the Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credit.

Earlier this year, Ohio joined 26 other states that have a tax credit designed to encourage private investment in preserving and rehabilitating historic properties. State Senator J. Kirk Schuring and former State Representative Charles E. Calvert were instrumental in bringing Ohio’s new tax credit into being. Representative Calvert shepherded House Bill 149 through the Ohio House in May 2006. Senator Schuring, who’d previously introduced companion legislation known as Senate Bill 60, guided the bill through hearings in the Senate. Signed into law in January 2007, the Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credit is jointly administered by the Ohio Department of Development and the Ohio Historic Preservation Office of the Ohio Historical Society. Eighty-four applications representing a total investment nearing one billion dollars have been received to date. Senator Schuring, a life-long resident of Stark County, served in the Ohio House of Representatives from 1993 to 2002. He has represented the 29th district as state senator since 2003. Representative Calvert, born in Cleveland, attended Baldwin Wallace College and Cleveland State University. A former chief financial officer for NASA’s Glenn Research Center, he served as 69th district representative from Medina from 1998 to 2006.
