Preserving Oviedo's Distinctive Character
What We Do
We educate the community about historical buildings in our Central Florida (US) community and seek to raise money to help owners preserve them.
Top Three Things to Communicate
#1 - FRESHNESS of the idea of preservation (we've knocked most things down, so this IS a new idea)
#2 - ROOTS - the reasons why the town grew (citrus, celery, trains, turpentine [made from pine trees] and steam boats [on the fringes])
#3 - MUTUAL RESPECT - for property rights, the buildings that have been here so long, the old people in our community who still remember the olden days, the continued progress that everyone wants for our city
Our Target Audience:
Everyone who lives in or near Oviedo. All ages, all genders, all income levels.
We're open to all colors, but have been using black, white, green, and gold in our efforts to date. Grey might be a nice addition - we put out a black and white calendar each year, so something that looks classy in grayscale is key.
