Input sought on preservation issues, priorities

The Virginia Department of Historic Resources is asking the public to complete an online survey to help it identify major issues facing communities as they use and preserve their historic assets, and also to help identify preservation priorities to guide Virginia’s preservation community.

“Public input is vital to develop a meaningful statewide historic preservation plan for Virginia,” Julie Langan, director of the Department of Historic Resources, said in a news release.

“If you care about preservation and your community’s historic assets, the estimated 15 minutes it takes to complete the survey will be time well spent,” she added.

The feedback from the online survey will assist the agency and its preservation partners as they develop broad goals and objectives for Virginia during the next 10 years.

The survey itself is anonymous, although it offers the option for participants to provide contact information so that the agency may keep citizens informed as the planning process moves forward.
