THC and Preservation Planning VIP

The Texas Historical Commission can occasionally be invited into a community to help the community plan its preservation goals.  The "Visionaries in Preservation" program is that program.  Folks in Corsicana recently had such a visit.  The Daily Sun reports on it.  The article begins:
VIP 101: Planning for preservation
Heritage group continues workshop on preserving local history

"Corsicana's "Visionaries in Preservation" program got some nuts and bolts instruction Tuesday in moving forward with its plans to develop a heritage preservation program for the city.

"VIP" is the community planning program of the Texas Historical Commission (THC). VIP asks residents how they want their community to look and feel, and provides the necessary tools to help a city retain its identity and sense of place as it grows and changes. The state had gone through this process with 23 other communities, and three are in the process this year, including Corsicana. The city received a grant to participate in the program, providing technical assistance and organizational meetings to facilitate the process."   READ MORE OF THE DAILY SUN ARTICLE AT
