Guidance for Historic Preservation Planning

2009
The Bureau for Historic Preservation guidance for Historic Preservation Planning provides a framework for what constitutes a comprehensive historic preservation plan. The Historic Preservation Plan should provide local units of government a working document to identify historic and cultural resources in the county or municipality; to consider the issues, problems and opportunities associated with those resources; to explore the possibility of county-wide and regional approaches to management of important resources; and to develop goals, policies, and strategies for their appropriate use, conservation, preservation and protection that are consistent with those established for other comprehensive plan elements.
