"Identifying the resources first, provides the basis for the community's direction "
Cultural resource planning requires extensive research to identify key structures and sites that may provide a positive and/or historical impact for a community. CP&A identifies, evaluates and logs cultural, architectural, historical and archaeological resources that are vital to the community. This learning allows communities to establish goals, priorities and policies for protecting and promoting their cultural resources. CP&A acknowledges the role these resources play within a community and enjoys helping to develop a mapping tool that keeps these treasures alive for generations.
