CT Historic Preservation Office Seeks Public Input on State Plan at Meeting in Saybrook Tonight

OLD SAYBROOK — 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 to gather additional public input.

A public workshop on the Preservation Plan is being held at the The Pavilion at Saybrook Point Park, 155 College St. at Saybrook Point, Old Saybrook, CT on Tuesday, June 27, 7 to 9 p.m. sponsored by the Town of Old Saybrook.

The Town invites all readers to join in this planning process. Your input and advice are not only welcome but also needed. This will be a plan for every organization and individual involved in historic preservation, community planning, community revitalization, land conservation, storytelling, and related interests throughout Connecticut.

The Town of Old Saybrook and SHPO encourage you to get involved.
