There will be a meeting of the Avon Historical Society at the Old Town Hall of 1871, corner of Detroit Rd. and Stoney Ridge Rd., at 7 pm, on Monday, April 5, 2004, to discuss the Lorain County Preservation Network. Marilyn Fedelchak Harley, Coordinator, will explain what it is, where it has been, and what it hopes to accomplish.

Marilyn will describe how the Ohio Historic Preservation Office of The Ohio Historical Society could make Avon a Certified Local Government (CLG). Among other things, she will talk about the Heritage Home Loan Program. Marilyn has a lot of information on the "carrots" that can be offered to the owners of landmarks to encourage preservation. Tax credits are available by donating to 501(c)3 organizations and through other programs. For more information, call 934-6106.
