Historic Preservation Plan Purpose

The Historic Preservation Plan is intended to create a clear path to strengthening the City’s historic preservation program through a long-term vision and a set of practical and achievable strategies for improving the City’s historic preservation program and ethic within the community. The HPP will also build on past successes by acknowledging the role historic preservation plays in shaping the city’s urban form and character, in contributing to the city’s overall economic development, and in sustaining a high quality of life for all Nampa residents, businesses, and visitors.

The HPP will bring together in one document, the many and diverse initiatives, programs, needs, opportunities, goals, and principles related to the preservation of Nampa’s built environment. The HPP will be used as a work program to change and streamline current historic preservation efforts, as well as a guideline for future planning and development efforts and will reflect input from a broad range of partners, including preservation advocates, business interests and development advocates.
