State Rep. Tavia Galonski (D-Akron) today announced the Ohio State Historic Preservation Advisory Board’s nomination of the Kenmore Boulevard Historic District to the National Register of Historic Places. Once approved by the National Park Service, Kenmore Boulevard will be designated as a National Historic District.
“Kenmore Boulevard is a true example of the American spirit: a hardworking, proud community with strong roots in longstanding tradition,” said Rep. Galonski. “Recognizing the neighborhood as a National Historic District is a wonderful honor that will help the Kenmore Neighborhood Alliance preserve Kenmore’s rich history while it propels itself into the future.”
National Historic District designations make contributing structures eligible for federal historic tax credits and help encourage community investment. Rep. Galonski has long been in support of historic district status for this area.
“Seeing Kenmore Boulevard one step away from becoming a National Historic District fills me with joy and pride for the community,” added Galonski. “I stand firm in support of this recognition, and I hope the final decision grants Kenmore Boulevard the distinction they deserve.”
The National Park Service’s decision on designating Kenmore Boulevard District as a National Historic District is expected to take place this spring.
