Our Town Coshocton to meet

| September 17, 2013

COSHOCTON – Joyce Barrett, the executive director of Heritage Ohio, will be presenting at the Monday, Sept. 23, Our Town Coshocton meeting scheduled for 5 p.m. in the Frontier Power meeting room at 778 S. Second St.

Barrett began her career at Iowa State, where she earned her bachelor of science in history. She interned with the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC and completed her MBA at Arizona State. She has worked with the Iowa City Historic Preservation Commission, Tallgrass Historians consulting firm and was appointed the first executive director of the Iowa Historic Preservation Alliance. She has been with Heritage Ohio since 2004.

By the leadership of Barrett, towns work by four points to achieve their goals. Operations, design, marketing and business enhancement. Each area and its principals will be discussed at the meeting.

The Ohio Main Street Program, administered by Heritage Ohio, works with communities across the state to revitalize their historic or traditional commercial areas. Based in historic preservation, the Main Street approach was developed by the National Trust for Historic Preservation to save historic commercial architecture and the fabric of American communities’ built environment, but has become a powerful economic development tool as well.
