Statewide Preservation Plan

The current statewide historic preservation plan, A New Season, Preservation Plan for Minnesota's Historic Properties 2012-17, will be updated soon. Watch for upcoming announcements.

Every five years the Minnesota State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) updates the statewide historic preservation plan. The plan serves several purposes. First, it guides the work of the SHPO, which authors the plan and plays the lead role in its implementation - a role mandated under the National Historic Preservation Act. Second, and equally important, the plan provides a framework for the ongoing work of historic preservation by all of Minnesota's preservation partners.
