Tyler Historic Preservation PlanTyler, 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.
