The St. Augustine Historic Preservation Master Plan

2018 ADOPTED DRAFT of Historic Preservation Master Plan 
2018 SUPPLEMENT for Historic Preservation Master Plan

1885viewCrop

The City began work on the Historic Preservation Plan in 2015. The intent was for the plan to synthesize previous planning efforts, reflect current preservation values, and create goals and recommendations for the future. With the help of the National Alliance of Preservation Commissions (NAPC), the planning process began with an expert speaker, who introduced the concept of the Historic Preservation Master Plan. This was followed by a survey to gather initial public input. In January 2016, Preservation Design Partnership, LLC, a consulting firm out of Philadelphia, PA, was selected to head the effort in developing the St. Augustine Historic Preservation Master Plan. After multiple workshops and meetings with the public, Historic Architecture Review Board, and the Planning and Zoning Board, the document was completed in October of 2018.

The approved St. Augustine Historic Preservation Master Plan identifies ways to respond to challenges associated with redevelopment pressures, flooding from storm events and sea level rise, and similar hazards. It also has a set of action items, which are broken up into eight categories that create a work plan to improve existing and to create new policies and programs. The work plan is broken up into three implementation tiers, which are broken down further to recommended tasks, to help prioritize the work. The work plan will help guide St. Augustine's historic preservation program as it continues to preserve and maintain the city's historic and cultural resources.
