Help Guide the Future of Preservation in New Jersey!

The New Jersey Historic Preservation Office (HPO) is pleased to present a preliminary Draft 2023-2028 Comprehensive Statewide Historic Preservation Plan. The HPO is leading an update to the Comprehensive Statewide Historic Preservation Plan, to be completed by the end of 2022. The Plan is intended to be a wide-reaching document that addresses the treatment of the historic and cultural resources across the state, identifies challenges and opportunities, and communicates a renewed vision for historic preservation in New Jersey. Additionally, it will serve as a guide for planning and decision making by the HPO, municipalities, agencies, non-profit organizations, and others who may affect these resources.

Public input is an essential component of the Plan. Thank you to all who participated in our online survey and initial outreach meetings earlier this year. The HPO now welcomes comments on the draft Plan.
