The West Virginia State Historic Preservation Office will conduct a meeting April 16 at the Met Theater in Morgantown

The meeting is one of a series of 12 across the state seeking comments on the current historic preservation comprehensive plan and ideas for the direction of historic preservation efforts from 2014 to 2019.

"These meetings will be an opportunity to discuss local concerns about how historic preservation efforts are working across the state," said Susan Pierce, deputy state historic preservation officer. "We want to hear what the successes have been as well as the challenges so that we can develop new goals and objectives for the next five years."

Input from the meetings and surveys will be used to draft a new comprehensive plan, which will be finalized by June 2014.

The current statewide historic preservation comprehensive plan, "The Past Matters Today," was published in 2009. Every five years this plan is reviewed and updated.
