Ideas sought for preservation efforts; meeting slated May 22 in Fayetteville

CHARLESTON — The West Virginia State Historic Preservation Office will conduct 12 meetings across the state, including one in Fayetteville, to receive comments regarding the current historic preservation comprehensive plan and ideas for the direction of historic preservation efforts in the state from 2014 to 2019.

“These meetings will be an opportunity to discuss local concerns about how historic preservation efforts are working across the state,” said Susan Pierce, deputy state historic preservation officer.  “We want to hear what the successes have been as well as the challenges so that we can develop new goals and objectives for the next five years.”

Input from the meetings and surveys will be used to draft a new comprehensive plan, which will be finalized by June 2014.

The most recent statewide historic preservation comprehensive plan, “The Past Matters Today” was published in 2009. Every five years this plan is reviewed, revised, and updated as needed.

The Fayetteville meeting is set for May 22 at 6 p.m. at the American Legion Post 149, 205 W. Maple Ave. No prior registration is required to attend a meeting. Each meeting is scheduled to last 11⁄2 hours.

An online questionnaire also is available on our website at Paper copies can be requested by calling 304-558-0240.
