El Dorado Historic Preservation Plan

El Dorado, AR

The City of El Dorado, Arkansas engaged the Lakota Group to create its first ever Historic Preservation Plan focusing on identifying future National Register and Local Historic Districts and recognizing its African American heritage through historic resource surveys, promoting heritage tourism and revitalizing its residential neighborhoods. The Historic Preservation Plan also addresses education and advocacy efforts, and potential updates to the municipal historic preservation ordinance. The Historic Preservation Plan was funded in part with a Certified Local Government Grant by the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program, an agency of the Division of Arkansas Heritage, Department of Parks, Heritage and Tourism.
