The Connecticut State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) is working on a Comprehensive Statewide Historic Preservation Plan to be completed by the end of the year. The Plan will be an intensive level planning document addressing the treatment of the historic and cultural resources across the state. It will serve as a guide for planning and decision making by the SHPO, Towns, agencies, non-profit organizations, and others who may affect these resources.
The SHPO is reaching out to stakeholders to gather input, information, and advice. Public workshops are being conducted in communities throughout the state in collaboration with local partners. An online survey will be posted soon to gather additional public input.
Public workshops on the Preservation Plan are scheduled at the locations below. Space is limited, so pre-registration is required. Click here to register for each workshop except the June 26th event at the Wilton Historical Society. To register for Wilton Historical Society event, click here.
