  Original Published: 11/8/2013The city of Shelby is looking at options for preserving history. The Community Improvement Corporation of Shelby hosted an informative program last night. Nathan Bevil, from the Ohio Historic Preservation Office, spoke of historic preservation, tax credits, and what it means to be a certified local government. CIC President Joe Wechter says the meeting was called to gauge interest in creating a historic district in Shelby. Wechter says there are definitely options available, including financial help from state and federal agencies, to move forward with a historic district. He says such a move could revitalize the downtown, and make Shelby a destination that people are interested in coming to see. Wechter says there's a history associated with some of Shelby's older buildings, and the CIC would like to preserve that history for future generations.
