In 2018, the Maryland Historical Trust will finalize PreserveMaryland II, the statewide preservation plan – a five-year guidance
document for government agencies, non-profit advocates and others involved in historic preservation, archeology and cultural
heritage. To develop the plan and make recommendations for the future, MHT convened an
and has solicited feedback via open public meetings around the state, focus groups and surveys, as well as
stakeholder interviews. Based on this feedback, PreserveMaryland II is, in many ways, an update and extension of
PreserveMaryland, the current statewide
preservation plan, with new and enhanced action items.
As the final step in soliciting public comment, MHT invites comments on the draft goals, objectives and strategies for
PreserveMaryland II, which will form the core of the plan. (The final plan will include a report on PreserveMaryland
as well as highlight examples of great preservation projects and activities around the state.) Please note that, although
this is a text draft, the final plan will be fully designed and illustrated.
