The Historic Preservation Planning Program of the National Park Service develops national policy related to historic preservation planning. Preservation planning is the rational, systematic process by which a community develops a vision, goals, and priorities for the preservation of its historic and cultural resources. The community seeks to achieve its vision through its own actions and through influencing the actions of others. Goals and priorities are based on analyses of resource data and community values. The Historic Preservation Planning Program helps communities of all kinds make sense of the planning process and ensure it is useful and effective.
The first meeting for the new Cape Charles Preservation Plan will be held on March 4,
Sheri and Tom Hall, professors at Christopher Newport University and the consultants preparing the Preservation Plan, will be leading the discussion. Everyone is welcome to attend.
