The development and implementation of a comprehensive statewide historic preservation plan is one of the responsibilities of each State Historic Preservation Office, as outlined in the National Historic Preservation Act. The Plan includes information about trends in Georgia and how they may affect historic properties; mission, vision and goals for historic preservation; information about Georgia's historic and archaeological resources, and about the statewide preservation planning process.
Georgia State Historic Preservation Plan 2017-2021
The Georgia Historic Preservation Division has updated the Statewide Historic Preservation Plan (SHPP) as required every five years by the National Park Service. The 2017-2021 plan guides our work through 2021 and provides a common direction for all organizations and individuals who support the preservation of Georgia's historic places.
