Preservation Planning
Preservation planning
Each State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) develops, implements, and periodically revises a statewide comprehensive Historic Preservation Plan. This plan must cover all types of historic and prehistoric cultural resources, and must include input from the widest possible public.

The primary purpose of historic preservation planning is to ensure that preservation issues are addressed in the most effective ways possible. The ultimate goal is the protection and preservation of valued historic and cultural resources for future generations.

The 2005-2010 Oregon Historic Preservation Plan (PDF) outlines broad goals and strategies for preservation efforts statewide and describes SHPO's role in those efforts.  Local jurisdictions and other preservation partners (government agencies, tribes, non-profits) are encouraged to integrate elements of the Historic Preservation Plan into their own plans.

Comments and questions about the current plan are welcome and encouraged.
