New Mexico State Historic Preservation Plan

New Mexico State Historic Preservation Plan

The State Historic Preservation Officer is required to develop a statewide preservation plan every 5-10 years. The plan must be a written plan that addresses the full range of historic and cultural resources in the state. The statewide plan is a strategic plan for the future and it is essential to engage the public to obtain your input and ideas. We need your input! A survey is available in English and Spanish.
