Preservation Briefs

The Planning Department provides preservation planning services to maintain the historic integrity of Delaware County communities.

Delaware County’s Historic Preservation Planners use strategic planning tools to protect the County’s historic, cultural, and archaeological resources. These efforts help enhance the character of our communities and generate economic vitality. The Planning Department also provides a wealth of files, survey information, and historical atlases to other agencies and the public at large.

The Planning Department encourages the use of best practice when undertaking work to historic buildings

The National Park Service has issued a series of Preservation Briefs which provide guidance on preserving, rehabilitating and restoring historic buildings. They help historic building owners recognize and resolve common problems prior to work. The briefs are especially useful to Historic Preservation Tax Incentives Program applicants because they recommend methods and approaches for rehabilitating historic buildings that are consistent with their historic character.
