PRESERVING THE PAST TO PROTECT THE FUTURE: THE 2022-2027 STATEWIDE HISTORIC PRESERVATION PLAN
(Kapolei) – Every five years the state updates the Statewide Historic Preservation Plan, which provides focus of efforts to preserve, protect, and manage places important to Hawai`i’s history and culture.
The DLNR State Historic Preservation Division (SHPD) announces the first in a series of public meetings for the 2022-2027 Statewide Historic Preservation Plan.
This five-year strategic plan is intended to help create goals for historic preservation in the state and inform the activities of the SHPD. Completion of this plan is required for Hawaiʻi to remain eligible to receive federal funds from the National Park Service. The plan’s purpose is to bring together historic preservation professionals and interested community members to craft ways to better manage historic properties in our state. The plan assesses historic preservation needs, priorities, goals, challenges, and opportunities and will highlight recommendations for future management of historic properties in Hawaiʻi.
Historic properties include, but are not limited to:
- Historic buildings
- Archaeological sites
- Aviation artifacts
- Cultural landscapes
- Historic districts such as Chinatown
- Heiau and traditional cultural properties.
