Historic Preservation in the Cowboy State, Wyoming’s Comprehensive Statewide Historic Preservation Plan 2016-2026

Draft of revised plan now avaialble for review! (34 MB)pdf document

The State Historic Preservation Office has responsibility under the National Historic Preservation Act for developing and revising as necessary, a Statewide Historic Preservation Plan. This plan helps guide the work of the State Historic Preservation Office by providing a vision for historic preservation in Wyoming.

In 2014, we began making preparations to revise the 2007-2015 Historic Preservation Plan. Over the past several months we have gathered public comments on preservation issues and priorities in Wyoming. We appreciate all of you who participated in the planning process by responding to our plan revision survey or attending one of our public meetings.

A draft of our revised plan, Historic Preservation in the Cowboy State, Wyoming’s Comprehensive Statewide Historic Preservation Plan 2016-2026, is now available for review. We welcome any comments you may have for improvement. Please send comments by November 15, 2016 to Judy Wolf, Chief-Planning Program at judy.wolf@wyo.gov.
