Historic Preservation Plan for Nevada

Every eight years, the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) prepares a plan that establishes historic preservation goals to guide all preservation activities in the state.  Since 2017, and through questionnaires and meetings, the SHPO has gathered public comment about important cultural resources, threats and challenges to those resources, as well as public preservation goals.  SHPO staff has synthesized this information into the following draft plan.

We need your help to ensure that this draft plan accurately reflects the public's vision for the next eight years.  Public participation is essential to the process and we welcome any additions, deletions, or edits to this draft document.

Please review the draft document by clicking on the image below and submit any comments you might have by November 12, 2019.
