Jefferson City will hold a public meeting next week where residents and historic preservationists can comment on the city’s draft Historic Preservation Plan.

The Historic Preservation Plan will concentrate on the “community’s unique issues and opportunities” and help guide historic preservation in Jefferson City, according to a Thursday news release.

Individuals can view the plan at jeffersoncitymo.gov/live_play/history_heritage/historic_preservation.php.

The public hearing will be during a special Jefferson City Historic Preservation Commission meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday at 320 E. McCarty St.

Those who can’t attend the meeting can also email comments to jcplanning@jeffcitymo.org or mail them to the Jefferson City Department of Planning and Protective Services at 320 E. McCarty St.

In December, the Jefferson City Council approved a $30,000 contract with Heritage Strategies LLC, to develop a historic preservation plan. The State Historic Preservation Office will pay 50 percent of the contract cost, Jefferson City Neighborhood Services Manager Jayme Abbott previously said.
