OHM Advisors is pleased to announce that on October 19, the City of Massillon Lincoln Way Streetscape project and the Mayor of Massillon, Ohio, Kathy Catazaro-Perry, received the 2021 Heritage Ohio Best Downtown Placemaking Award.

Heritage Ohio is the state’s official historic preservation and Main Street organization whose mission is to foster economic development and sustainability through preservation of historic buildings, revitalization of downtowns and neighborhood commercial districts, and promotion of cultural tourism. Its annual award for Best Downtown Placemaking recognizes outstanding plan designs embodying the spirit of its mission.

The Lincoln Way Streetscape project focused on revitalizing the streetscape in Massillon’s downtown commercial district.
