The Historic Preservation Master Plan is the primary guide for historic resources in the County. The purpose of this plan is to establish proactive priorities, goals, and objectives for County historic preservation activities that involve the historic built environment and County history in general. The Historic Preservation Master Plan serves as a guide to communicate the County’s Historic Preservation policies to citizens, businesses, developers, and others.
