In 2018, the Maryland Historical Trust will update 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 has convened
an interdisciplinary advisory committee and is working in
partnership with Preservation Maryland, the Coalition of Maryland Heritage Areas, Main Street Maryland, the Maryland Museums
Association and the Maryland Association of Historic District Commissions.
To solicit and incorporate public feedback into the plan update, MHT has conducted open public meetings around the state and held a
series of focus groups around topic area and by profession. MHT gathered additional feedback from general and targeted surveys,
as well as stakeholder interviews. A draft plan is anticipated by fall 2018 and will be released for public comment.
