Preservation Plan Draft Available for Comment

By: Alice Guerrant

The staff of the Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs has finished the first complete draft of the statewide historic preservation plan for 2013-2018. We’ve kept it as short as possible, while making sure the necessary background is included.

Help us make the plan better! Click here to download a copy of the draft, and let us know what you think.

Do you know of any preservation successes or accomplishments since January 2008 that aren’t in the list in the appendix? Tell us about them, and we’ll be happy to add them to the list. Make sure your organization’s work gets recognition in the state plan!

E-mail your comments, suggestions, and additions to preservationplan@delaware.gov by September 7, 2012. And thanks for all the help we have received through this whole process!

What’s next?

Once this comment period ends, we will make changes and corrections based on the comments. On September 14, we will send the final draft to the National Park Service for their technical review. By early November, we should have any comments back from the Park Service. We will then prepare the final plan to submit to the Park Service by the middle of November, and to the Delaware State Review Board for Historic Preservation in January 2013 for their adoption of the plan. Shortly after that, the plan will be posted to our web site and copies will be printed for distribution.
