Saving Our Past: For a Resilient Future – Updating Alaska's Historic Preservation Plan

In 2023, OHA began preparing to update Saving Our Past: Planning for Our Future, Alaska's Historic Preservation Plan 2018-2023. This next iteration of Alaska's historic preservation plan will cover the next ten years, from 2025-2034. During the planning process, OHA will 1) conduct meaningful public engagement, 2) address the full range of historic resources within the State, 3) identify issues affecting historic resources and seek solutions, and 4) set priorities for action during the life cycle of the plan.

OHA is launching a public engagement effort in the spring of 2024 to gather input from our preservation partners, stakeholders, and the public. An Online Mapping and Storytelling webpage serves as a hosting platform to announce workshop locations, provide access to online surveys and polls, and display interactive maps of Alaska's historic resources statewide. The results of public engagement activities and the identification of goals and objectives will also be updated on the Online Mapping and Storytelling website coming soon.

 Please use our Quick Poll below to provide initial feedback to help us in developing our public engagement activities.
