Mission Statement

Our mission is to preserve and enhance the scenic character of Ohio’s communities and countryside.

Scenic Ohio is an affiliate of Scenic America. Created in 1933 as the Ohio Roadside Council, Scenic Ohio is the only not-for-profit in Ohio dedicated to protecting and enhancing the visual quality and scenic character of Ohio’s towns and countryside. We seek to educate the public and elected officials about their ability to enact stricter laws to enhance and protect the visual quality of the landscape. Scenic Ohio is an entirely volunteer not-for-profit 501 organization. Join us and help us protect your scenery.
