This plan supports the Cultural Resources Inventory and aids the City and the community to identify and address historic resources. It serves as a strategic planning tool to help the community plan for these historic resources. The plan provides information about historic trends, properties, and individuals in the history of the community and provides the framework for rational, consistent decision-making in the management of these cultural resources. It serves as the basis for establishing historic preservation plans, and context statements for the city’s distinct historic periods. The plan also includes measures for local and National Register designation and development of protective and promotional measures for significant resources.
