Heritage Preservation is important because it:

  • Enhances the aesthetic quality of the community
  • Guides the orderly growth and development of the community
  • Maintains and enhances property values
  • Revitalizes neighborhoods
  • Reinvests in and recycles existing, sometimes abandoned, structures
  • Retains indigenous character and sense of time and place, which provides identity to the community and its residents
