Preservation Plan

Every eight years, the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) prepares a plan that establishes historic preservation goals to be accomplished.  SHPO sends out questionnaires and holds public meetings to elicit public comment about important resources, their threats and challenges, and this information is used to prepare the plan.  Upon completion, the plan is adopted and approved by the National Park Service, and serves to prioritize grant applications and SHPO projects. In December 2011, the National Park Service approved a new preservation plan for the State of Nevada.
