Wrapping up the Disaster Planning for Historic Properties Initiative

Over the past year, VPC has been working with the Pennsylvania Historic and Museum Commission on a pilot project intended to bring attention to the need for historic and cultural resources to be considered when developing hazard mitigation plans. The pilot included four geographically, demographically, and architecturally diverse counties across the Commonwealth, with the goal of providing a template for other counties to follow in the future.

The project builds on earlier survey efforts by incorporating historic preservation considerations into the Pennsylvania State Hazard Mitigation Plan as well as four individual County Hazard Mitigation Plans. The study was conducted in Bedford, Cameron, and Monroe Counties, and the City of Philadelphia.
