In 2014, County Planning was awarded a grant from the Ohio History Connection to survey single-family housing constructed between 1945 and 1969. The survey included a review of 160,000 buildings, resulting in one of the largest and most comprehensive inventories of its type undertaken in the nation.

The survey identified residential historic districts that could be candidates for the National Register of Historic Places. The 2014 inventory complements the survey of pre-1945 single-family housing completed by County Planning in 2007.

Survey work has been completed and is currently under review by the State of Ohio.
