Planning for Preservation

Planning for Preservation

Historic preservation does not happen by chance, it requires the proper planning, foresight, and education to ensure the protection of Vermont’s historic resources. Effective preservation involves partners and the concerted involvement of many individuals and organizations. With a broad-based effort, thousands of historic resources can endure as landmarks to narrate this brave little state’s distinct sense of place. 

2016-2021 Historic Preservation Plan

The Vermont State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO) and the Division for Historic Preservation (VDHP) have the responsibility under the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 for developing a Statewide Historic Preservation Plan every five years. 

Certified Local Government (CLG)

Strengthening local preservation programs, the Certified Local Government (CLG) program encourages the direct participation of local governments in the identification, evaluation, registration, and preservation of historic properties within their jurisdictions. It promotes the integration of local preservation interests and concerns into local planning and decision-making processes.
