In order to solicit information for use in drafting Delaware’s 2013-2017 statewide historic-preservation plan, the Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs will be holding five public meetings at locations across the state in late-February and early-March 2012. All meetings are free and open to the public.
Public meetings will be held on the following dates:
- Monday, Feb. 27, 6 p.m., Lewes Public Library , 111 Adams St., Lewes, Del.
- Wednesday, Feb. 29, 6:30 p.m., Brandywine Hundred Library , 1300 Foulk Road, Wilmington, Del.
- Monday, March 5, 1:30 p.m., The Old State House , 25 The Green, Dover, Del.
- Monday, March 5, 6 p.m., Laurel Public Library , 101 E. Fourth St., Laurel, Del.
- Wednesday, March 7, 6:30 p.m., Old Middletown Academy , 216 N. Broad St., Middletown, Del.
Those interested in Delaware’s historic buildings, communities and sites are invited to attend these public meetings in order to share their thoughts on the future of historic-preservation in the state. Public input will be incorporated into the updated historic-preservation plan which is scheduled to be released in January 2013. The public may review the goals and objectives identified in the last planning process by accessing Delaware’s current historic-preservation plan .
While the Delaware historic-preservation plan is extremely useful for the division, it is not a blueprint for state government alone. Rather, it includes goals and strategies that benefit preservation advocates across Delaware. The plan provides all Delawareans who are passionate about historic preservation with a framework for effective decision-making, for coordinating statewide preservation activities and for communicating statewide preservation policy, goals and values to the preservation constituency, decision-makers and interested and affected parties across the state.
Members of the public who are not able to attend one of the public meetings may instead submit written comments to the Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs, 21 the Green, Dover, DE 19901; or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org .
