The Minnesota State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) released their new planning document, which covers 2012-2017 and is used to help guide the organization’s policies and initiatives.
“Every five years the Minnesota State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) updates the statewide historic preservation plan. The plan serves several purposes. First, it guides the work of the SHPO, which authors the plan and plays the lead role in its implementation – a role mandated under the National Historic Preservation Act. Second, and equally important, the plan provides a framework for the ongoing work of historic preservation by all of Minnesota’s preservation partners.”
