Welcome to the Oregon Heritage Partners Survey

The purpose of this survey is to identify our partners and the connections among them; evaluate the relevancy of the programs offered by the Oregon State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) and Oregon Heritage to the concerns of the larger heritage community; and to identify opportunities for education and preservation activities. The information collected will be used to inform future outreach efforts through 2016 and early 2017 leading to the creation of the Oregon State Historic Preservation Plan. Every five years the Oregon SHPO in partnership with the general public, interest and advocacy groups, and other government agencies completes a statewide historic preservation plan that identifies program priorities. A copy of the current plan can be found here: http://www.oregon.gov/OPRD/HCD/SHPO/docs/historic_preservation_plan_11-16.pdf .

Oregon Heritage, a Division of Oregon State Parks, includes the Oregon SHPO. The Oregon SHPO locally administers National Park Service (NPS) programs created by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended, including the identification and designation of historic properties and archaeological sites; tax and grant programs; and the Certified Local Government Program (CLG), a partnership program between local jurisdictions and the state and federal government. The SHPO also coordinates closely with Oregon Heritage programs, including the Heritage Commission and Main Street, among others. The SHPO office is funded in part through a grant from NPS.
