The goal of preservation planning is to ensure the protection of valuable historic and cultural properties for future generations. Preservation planning involves the identification, assessment, preservation, and management of historic and cultural resources. These include buildings and structures, historic districts, landscapes, and archaeological sites. Work often draws from various aspects of CRM work, such as archival research, architectural and archaeological survey, NRHP nomination, etc. All the gathered data is synthesized into a historic preservation plan (HPP), or cultural resource management plan, that documents specific guidelines for the implementation of a program designed to meet preservation goals, and often plans for public interpretation. Community input, public consensus, and local and federal regulations concerning cultural resource management are significant factors considered during the planning and implementation of a preservation program.
