State Historic Preservation Plan Public Outreach Meeting in Gardnerville on November 8

CARSON CITY, Nev. – A workshop to discuss Nevada’s Preservation Plan will be held on Thursday, November 8, at the Douglas County Community & Senior Center’s Grandview Dining Room, located at 1329 Waterloo Lane. The meeting is scheduled from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Every eight years, the Nevada State Historic Preservation Office (NSHPO) prepares a strategic plan that encourages broad public participation in planning for cultural resources, meets challenges unique to preservation in Nevada, influences historic preservation policy in state and local governments, and empowers local communities, organizations, and individuals to action.

“The public input we receive at these meetings is invaluable in shaping goals and objectives for a comprehensive, statewide plan,” said Rebecca Palmer, State Historic Preservation Officer. “Cultural resources such as buildings, districts, sites, objects or landscapes provide physical links to the past and the diverse groups of people who inhabited this region over an 11,000 year period of time. Protecting these resources preserves the complete story of Nevada, which can be shown and shared for all time.”

Those who are unable to attend the meeting can provide comments to NSHPO by writing to Rebecca Palmer at 901 S. Stewart Street, Carson City, NV 89701.
