5. State Historic Preservation Plan 2018-2023 Open for Public Comment

Oregon.Flat.poleAs part of its mission, the Oregon State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) in partnership with the community creates a statewide historic preservation plan every five years to identify what is special about Oregon and how best to preserve it for future generations. The plan addresses identifying and preserving historic places, educating the public about the State’s history, and building support for the organizations that curate our cultural legacy.

A draft of the 2018-2023 Preservation Plan is now open for comment through October 12, 2017. This plan was created using information gained from a public survey, six public meetings across the state, and workshop sessions with various commissions and work groups including the State Advisory Committee on Historic Preservation, Oregon Heritage Commission, Oregon Commission on Historic Cemeteries, Oregon Historic Trails Advisory Commission, and the Intergovernmental Cultural Resource Council, a working group of federal and state agencies and tribal governments.

The public comment period will be open through October 12, 2017 and the public is encouraged to provide general comments in addition to focusing on the issue statements, goal statements, and objectives outlined in the plan.

The plan can be found at www.oregonheritage.org. For more information on the plan or to comment, contact Ian Johnson at Ian.Johnson@oregon.gov or (503) 986-0678. You can also mail comments to The State Historic Preservation Office, Attn: Ian Johnson, 725 Summer St NE, Suite C, Salem, OR 97301.
