State Historic Preservation Plan workshop today

Staff Reports

A workshop to discuss Nevada's Preservation Plan will be held 6 to 8 p.m. today at the Douglas County Community and Senior Center's Grandview Dining Room, 1329 Waterloo Lane in Gardnerville.

Every eight years, the Nevada State Historic Preservation Office prepares a strategic plan that encourages broad public participation in planning for cultural resources, meets challenges unique to preservation in Nevada, influences historic preservation policy in state and local governments and empowers local communities, organizations and individuals to action.

"The public input we receive at these meetings is invaluable in shaping goals and objectives for a comprehensive, statewide plan," said Rebecca Palmer, State Historic Preservation officer. "Cultural resources such as buildings, districts, sites, objects or landscapes provide physical links to the past and the diverse groups of people who inhabited this region over 11,000-year period of time. Protecting these resources preserves the complete story of Nevada, which can be shown and shared for all time."

Those who are unable to attend the meeting can provide comments to NSHPO by writing to Palmer at 901 S. Stewart St., Carson City, 89701.

Everyone also is invited to take NSHPO's online survey at http://www.shpo.nv.gov/strategicplan.
