Shaping Preservation In Kansas: 2017-2022

Kansas Preservation PlanEvery five years the Kansas Historical Society produces a statewide preservation plan meant to guide future activities of the preservation community in Kansas. 

The Kansas Historical Society gathered public input to shape the five-year plan hoping that it will reflect the preservation concerns and challenges of the whole state. Printed copies of the current preservation plan are availble in limited numbers. Please contact the Cultural Resources Division, Kansas Historical Society, 6425 SW 6th Avenue, Topeka, KS 66615: 785-272-8681, ext. 240; shpo@ks.gov.

2017-2022 Kansas Preservation PlanThe 2017-2022 Kansas Preservation Plan is the result of a planning process initiated by the Kansas Historical Society's Cultural Resources Division (CRD) with input from a variety of state and federal agencies, preservation organizations, and the public. The CRD carries out many preservation functions in Kansas, including assisting the State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO) in assuring compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, implementing state and federal grant and tax credit programs, managing and maintaining the historic property and archeological site inventories for Kansas, interpreting the history and prehistory of the state as reflected by material culture, and developing and implementing educational programming for all Kansans. Many other organizations carry out preservation programs in Kansas; more information on those that participated in this plan and their preservation programs is presented in the plan.

Anyone interested in preservation-related issues in Kansas is encouraged to share the plan with community leaders and organizations.
