          Historic Preservation Planning and Statewide Historic Preservation Plan
          A historic preservation plan is a statement of the community’s goals for its historic properties and the actions it will take to reach those goals. It is most effective when it is a component of a community’s master plan and is coordinated with other policies for housing, economic development, transportation, et cetera.
