AHPP seeking the public’s opinion on historic preservation

LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT) – The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program is seeking the public's opinion on future historic preservation issues through an online survey.

"The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program staff is preparing to update the five-year statewide comprehensive preservation plan and we want to hear from the people of Arkansas," Frances McSwain, AHPP Director, said. "It is vitally important that our constituents' opinions be fully and accurately reflected in the goals and objectives that will guide program decisions."

The online survey can be taken at http://www.arkansaspreservation.com/annual-report/survey.aspx. It will be available now through September 15th.

According to Community Outreach Director Mark Christ, the results from the survey will be consolidated and added to information gathered at a series of listening sessions held around the state.

The last three sessions will be held July 31st in Batesville, August 14th in Hot Springs, and August 21st in West Memphis.

For more information on the online survey or the listening sessions, you can contact Patricia Blick at (501) 324-9665 or patriciab@arkansasheritage.org.

The program is an agency of the Department of Arkansas Heritage. According to Christ, the AHPP is responsible for the identification, evaluation, registration, and preservation of the state's cultural resources.
