Historic Preservation Commission Seeks Public Input

What is important to you as community members of this community? How do we maintain history and character of our community while still promoting our independent ways?

Community members, the Seward Historic Preservation Commission, and Nuka Research & Planning met on April 22 to discuss the future of historic preservation in Seward.

On the evening of Tuesday, April 22, the Seward Historic Preservation Commission (SHPC) along with Nuka Research & Planning Group out of Seldovia, met with a small group of local community members to discuss the future of historic preservation in Seward.

The Seward Historic Preservation Commission is working with Nuka Research in efforts to update the Seward Historic Preservation Plan that was last updated in 1996. Nuka Research was hired by the SHPC in the Fall of 2013 to help implement and facilitate the planning process which includes organization of public input through outreach and an online survey that can be completed until May 15 of this year.


Planning preservation of the history and character of our community is not a simple process. Some issues that were discussed on Tuesday evening include economic feasibility, private property ownership, property ownership by seasonal community members, and coordinating preservation alongside other history focused organizations in this community.

Please help the SHPC by completing the online survey before May 15. We want to hear what you have to say.
