This year, the Maryland Historical Trust, Maryland’s State Historic Preservation Office, will update the statewide preservation plan — a five-year guiding document for government agencies and the greater preservation community.

To develop the plan, known as PreserveMaryland, the Maryland Historical Trust has convened an interdisciplinary advisory committee and is working in partnership with Preservation Maryland and other organizations to hold public and professional meetings to solicit feedback and recommendations for action.

Update: The Maryland Historical Trust has indicated that Friday, October 5, 2018 is the last day to provide online comments on the statewide PreserveMaryland plan.

This May, Preservation Maryland and the Maryland Historical Trust held meetings on the topics of historic preservation planning and preservation advocacy. The Maryland Historical Trust will also host additional meetings public meetings throughout the state. Citizens that are unable to attend these meeting or want to submit additional comments, can complete this survey.


Attendees should bring their ideas, questions and concerns about the future of historic preservation, archaeology 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. No registration is needed to attend these meeting; the Facebook RSVP is optional.
