The Historic Preservation Division of the Department of Natural Resources has begun the process of updating Georgia’s statewide historic preservation plan, a document that establishes state preservation priorities and policies to guide preservation efforts during the next five years.
As part of the planning process, HPD is soliciting input to help set its goals and priorities and to develop a plan that will be effective and useful to the division, the preservation community, and the general public. A short survey is available online at www.surveymonkey.com/r/SPLYXGH.
The development and implementation of a comprehensive statewide historic preservation plan is one of the responsibilities of each state historic preservation office, as outlined in the National Historic Preservation Act. The HPD is Georgia’s state historic preservation office.
The plan includes information about trends in Georgia and how they may affect historic properties; mission, vision and goals for historic preservation; information about Georgia’s historic and archaeological resources, and about the statewide preservation planning process.
