Tyler Historic Preservation Plan

Tyler, Texas

The Lakota Group is working with the City of Tyler, residents and stakeholders to create the City’s first Strategic Historic Preservation Plan. Tyler, Texas has a rich history and boasts 22 individual buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places and six national historic districts encompassing more than 2,400 buildings, sites and structures of a variety of building types and architectural styles. The process of preparing the Strategic Historic Preservation Plan represents a unique opportunity to assess the effectiveness of the current program, understand current issues and constraints to preservation, and consider a set of planning strategies and initiatives that address critical preservation planning concerns. An important element of the Plan will be a comparative analysis of the existing historic preservation ordinance and recommendations for enhancements.
