North Dakota State Historic Preservation Office 5-Year Plan, 2022-2027

Every five years, the North Dakota State Historic Preservation Office (NDSHPO), at the direction of the National Park Service (NPS), prepares a plan to guide preservation efforts within the state for the next five-year period.  This plan is not only intended for the use of the State Historical Society of North Dakota (SHSND) or the NDSHPO.  This document is also designed to provide guidance for anyone and everyone–government agencies, organizations, businesses, professional practitioners, members of the public–with an interest in identifying and preserving historic and cultural properties. The preservation plan is intended to assist users by providing information useful in understanding the environment that preservation efforts must navigate and to identify widely held priorities for those efforts. 

As part of this process, the NDSHPO asks for public input in determining the goals for the next five years.  This short survey will allow planning staff to determine which goals are most important and what challenges we might face as we work toward preserving the heritage of the people of North Dakota.
