Protecting Plano's Heritage Resources

A city’s history is one of the most important factors shaping its identity. In 1979, with rapid population increase and threats to historic resources, Plano adopted the first heritage preservation plan to protect city landmarks. Today, Plano’s cultural heritage and historic character provide a distinctive environment for residents and business owners with two heritage districts and 33 individually designated historic resources.

Preservation has become much more than saving bricks and mortar. It provides our community with sustainable, social, cultural, and economic advantages that enrich the city's sense of place and unique historical character. City staff and the Heritage Commission will provide assistance to educate property owners and guide building alterations through the application and approval process.

May is National Preservation Month!
