STATEWIDE HISTORIC PRESERVATION PLAN MEETINGS WERE HELD ON JANUARY 14TH AND FEBRUARY 8TH. Next Meeting: March 15th, 5:30-7:30 PM
The DLNR State Historic Preservation Division (SHPD) is announcing the third and final in a series of public meetings for the Statewide Historic Preservation Plan.
The 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
Community input is essential to effective historic preservation planning and this plan will be informed by the overall comments from these meetings. All comments related to historic preservation are welcome during these meetings. The comments from these initial meetings will be used to help develop future-focused and topical public meetings.
To better understand what the current plan will include, please review the previous plan: Hawaii State Preservation Plan for 2012-2017
