Historic Preservation in Juneau
May is Preservation Month and Juneau is ready to celebrate!
Everyone has places that are important to them. Places they care about. Places that matter. This Place Matters is a national campaign that encourages people to celebrate the places that are meaningful to them and to their communities, and Preservation Month is the perfect time for you to share those Juneau places with others.
While there, take a photo holding the This Place Matters logo. Email that photo and a brief description of why it matters to you to email@example.com and we will share your special place with the rest of Juneau.
NEWS AS OF APRIL, 2018
Juneau is in the midst of developing the City’s Historic Preservation Plan and continues to seek community input into the process.
Stakeholders in historic and cultural preservation efforts in the City and Borough of Juneau met on March 15 at the Alaska State Library, Archives & Museum (SLAM) and shared feedback regarding preservation planning by looking through the following lenses:
- Resource Identification & Management
- Education & Interpretation
- Economic Incentives & Benefits
- Advocacy & Partnerships
The Community Development Department will continue to collect input and feedback from community stakeholders and work to produce a draft plan; at which time the public will again be encouraged to share comments. Stay tuned for announcements of public meetings and workshops.
For questions contact Allison Eddins at the Juneau Community Development Department, 586-0758 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
