Historic preservation planning provides a forum for planners, local officials, and other community stakeholders to establish goals and prioritize actions to protect and enhance historic resources. These resources include sites, structures, objects, and districts that have national, state, or local historical or cultural significance.

This edition of PAS QuickNotes highlights the potential benefits of historic preservation and summarizes how local officials and planners can create and implement a local historic preservation strategy.
