Statewide Preservation Plan Public Meetings in June

Next month, the Maryland Historical Trust will host public meetings to solicit feedback about goals and recommended actions for the statewide preservation plan – a five-year guidance document for government agencies, non-profit advocates and others involved in historic preservation, archeology and cultural heritage. 

Attendees should bring their ideas, questions and concerns about the future of historic preservation, archeology and cultural heritage. Each meeting will include a short presentation about the planning process and information about historic and cultural sites and activities in the region, followed by a facilitated discussion. Please plan to attend a meeting near you!
